The Utah National Guard has launched an internal investigation into a photo shoot held at the U.S. Army base in Draper. British models gathered at the facility for the 2015 Hot Shots calendar shoot, in which they were photographed firing guns and driving tanks while barely clothed. Apparently, they may have used some of the equipment on the base without authorization.

The annual Hot Shots calendar raises money for British military charity ‘Help for Heroes.’
Lt. Col. Steven Fairbourn told FOX 13:
“An investigation was initiated by the Utah National Guard on October 14 to determine potential unauthorized use of military equipment, facilities, and personnel in the Hot Shots 2015 calendar production. Productions of this kind are not in keeping with the values of the Utah National Guard nor its members. Use of military equipment, facilities, and personnel in civilian for-profit endeavors such as this requires approval of National Guard Bureau Public Affairs through the respective state National Guard Headquarters. There was no official approval for this project. The investigation will determine if Utah National Guard equipment, facilities, and personnel were used in the Hot Shots 2015 calendar production and required actions if this is the case.”
It appears that the models may have gained access to the equipment used in their photo shoot with the help of certain members of the Utah National Guard, as they are thanked at the end of the video above. House Minority Leader Jennifer Seelig, D-Salt Lake City, frowned upon the security breach. She told the media:
“If this video was shot at a government restricted facility using government specialized military equipment, either leadership knew about this — or their security protocols aren’t robust enough to keep a bunch of calendar girls and their crew and assorted groupies out.”
