the battlefield, whether it is service in the Persian Gulf, Korea, Kosovo, the
war on terrorism or peace-keeping expeditionary campaigns. Your courage and
sacrifice have made a difference in preserving and defending world peace.

Join us for camaraderie and as we serve each other, all veterans, military servicemembers, their families, and our Minnesota communities.
