During the Afghanistan and Iraqi conflicts, approximately 15,000 Minnesota personnel from the active duty military, reserve military and the Army and Air National Guard have been called to serve their country. This is the largest single deployment of Guard personnel called to active duty since World War II.
Training to understand and help these military members before, during and after service will be provided Aug. 3, 9 a.m. to 12 noon at Lake Superior College in Room 2410. The training will be provided by Major John Morris and an Army National Guard Reintegration Team who provide training at many colleges and universities in Minnesota. A community training session will also be held Aug. 3 at the Duluth VFW from 1 pm to 4 pm.
