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.

That came almost a year later when the war ended, but it was certainly the second-best day of the war.

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

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.
