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.
