Every year, thousands of individuals raise their right hand and commit to serve in the military as either an enlisted member or an officer. While some choose to serve for many years on active duty, others might elect to leave, but that doesn’t mean they can’t continue serving.
Beale participates in a grazing program where the base leases approximately 12,000 acres to ranchers for their cattle to graze from November through May.
Ranchers work with personnel on base to bring in the cattle at the beginning of the grazing season
