Celebrating 100 Years
Serving Minnesota Veterans, Active Duty Military, Their Families, and our Communities
As yesterday's defenders of freedom, we want to welcome today's military service
members into our ranks to become part of our elite group. Our common bond is
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.

That from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth. - President Abraham Lincoln
Patriotism consists not in waving the flag, but in striving that our country shall be righteous as well as strong.
