Governor Walz proclaims November Month of the Military Family

November 6, 2020 (ST. PAUL, Minnesota) -Governor Tim Walz proclaimed November as Month of the Military Family to salute and celebrate the extraordinary military families whose selfless service and sacrifice make our military the finest in the world.

Military spouses, siblings, parents, and children personify the ideals of patriotism, pride, resilience, service above self, and honor.  They endure the hardships and uncertainty during extended trainings and deployments.

Today, nearly 1,000 Minnesota National Guard members are deployed.

One of the most important lessons the Minnesota National Guard has learned is the invaluable support and assistance that our military members have and continue to receive from their families, employers, colleges and universities, neighbors and the generous citizens of Minnesota.
