Commissioner ShellitoApril is the “Month of the Military Child.”  The focus is on the impact of extensive deployments placed on our military families.  While the focus is on the child, I want to focus specifically on the spouse.

Ever since 9/11/01 Minnesota has sent its sons and daughters to all corners of the world.  Minnesotans have responded through such avenues as the Beyond the Yellow Programs, random acts of kindness, and genuine concern.  The families have been resilient and collectively supported one another also during the trying times of deployments.

"I'm proud of our tradition here in Minnesota, as well as the concept behind this program which recognizes the sacrifices and service of our military children. Let's come together to honor these children this month. I guarantee it will impact them more than you ever realize, for years to come," said Larry Shellito, Commissioner of the Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs.
