Gov. Dayton supports hockey program for military kids

Today is "Defending the Blue Line" Day in Minnesota, according to a declaration by Gov. Mark Dayton. Sounds like it might be a promo for a WWII movie, but it's to honor a nonprofit group that provides hockey equipment for kids in military families.

The group says it tries to keep hockey alive for the children of military parents by "providing free equipment for military kids, hockey camps, special events, and financial assistance for registration fees and other costs associated with hockey."

It was started by members of the National Guard.
The group will be at the Capitol today from 3 to 5 p.m.

Looking to the Future Evokes a Torrent of Memories

Minnesota National Guard A letter to Army Magazine
by Gen. John W. Vessey


Thanks for the June issue. It had a number of important articles for those interested in the future of America's Army.

As always, Gen. Frederick J. Kroesen, U.S. Army retired, had important thoughts for policymakers and voting citizens to consider ("More Than a Fair Share of Sacrifice"). Special thanks to Lt. Gen. Daniel P. Bolger, U.S. Army retired, for "The Day Before D-Day." As one of those Fifth Army soldiers who marched through Rome that day, however, I'd say it was not the greatest day of the war. That came almost a year later when the war ended, but it was certainly the second-best day of the war.



Brothers in aviation deploy together

Minnesota National Guard FORT HOOD, Texas - Joshua is the quietest of the three Tidei brothers. He is the only one to sport a mustache. When he speaks, jargon about aircraft maintenance flows out effortlessly. As an aircraft maintainer with the 2nd Battalion, 147th Assault Helicopter Battalion, he makes sure the UH-60 Black Hawks he maintains are working properly. He takes the job seriously. It could be his brother Jonathon, a UH-60 Black Hawk pilot, flying the helicopter next.

Chief Warrant Officer 2 Jonathon J. Tidei, Spc. Caleb P. Tidei and Spc. Joshua P. Tidei are deploying to Kuwait together.



The Importance of the American - Norwegian Reciprocal Troop Exchange

Minnesota National Guard CAMP RIPLEY, Minn.- "It's important to know the people we are going to serve with overseas before we get there," said Col Scott St. Sauver, Camp Ripley Post Commander.

Since its conception in world affairs, the United States of American has relied on the cooperation and partnerships of its allies during times of peace and war. These partnerships have ensured the progress of our national economic interests, advanced our medical and scientific research and strengthened the security of our military at home as well as overseas.

We have a lot to learn from each other and it starts right here, with the young members of these two military organizations.
