In the thirteen years since September 11, approximately 11,000 Minnesotan National Guard and Reserve soldiers have been called to active duty. These soldiers, both men and women, are often parents, partners, co-workers, and community leaders. They are our friends, neighbors, and family members.

These resources will help you learn more about the cycle of deployment and how you can support military families in your community.
