25 Veterans' Voices AwardIn the spirit of celebrating the accomplishments of Minnesota Veterans, the Humanities Center will host an unprecedented event that celebrates 25 Veterans' Voices to recognize the next great generation. The 25 Veterans' Voices Award will highlight Veterans who have made exceptional contributions to the community, in business, health care, public safety, education, the arts, government or any other endeavor which merits recognition. These rising stars have not merely returned to civilian life but are thriving and giving back to their Minnesota communities.

Commissioner ShellitoAcross the generations – and across the centuries – Americans have answered the call to duty and many paid the ultimate price.  Memorial Day is a time to honor the memory and service of all Veterans and military who have given their lives in the service of this country. No greater sacrifice could ever be asked of an individual. The service of these Veterans has impacted the life of every single citizen of this great nation. It is for that sacrifice that I salute my fallen comrades.

There is no observance in America more somber than Memorial Day.  In events held across America this Memorial Day weekend, people will gather in small towns and big cities for one purpose: to remember our fallen, pay homage to their sacrifice and courage, and to recognize the selflessness of military service.
