      Governor Dayton proclaims Minnesotans Salute Veterans and Diversity Week

      Posted on November 08, 2011 at 3:50 PM

      Governor Dayton has proclaimed this week, November 7-11, 2011, as Minnesotans Salute Veterans and Diversity Week — encouraging schools, businesses, individuals, state and local governments, and local community providers to work together to promote awareness of the many contributions of Veterans and the value of diversity in our communities.

      Veterans make significant contributions to Minnesota and the United States. The active and selfless participation of members of all races, genders, creeds, and national origins in the United States Army and Armed Forces contributes to the strength of our nation and makes Minnesota a better place to live.

      Governor Dayton honors the achievements and sacrifice of Minnesota's veterans and recognizes the strength that diversity adds to our armed forces and our state.
