SERVICE - Grizzly Newsmagazine


​The Grizzly Newsmagazine portrays the stories of our soldiers and airmen by using our public affairs professionals, public affairs offices and unit public affairs representatives (UPAR) in the California National Guard to cover missions, events, and training. Their stories, photos, and video make our Grizzly magazine, social media sites, and The California National Guard website.
