Memorial Day at Three Rivers

images.jpgAs a veteran, I am honored to join Senator Amy Klobuchar today at The Landing to recognize the contributions and sacrifices of our friends and family who have served our country in the military. Memorial Day is a reminder that we must translate our bumper-sticker patriotism into reality by actively honoring our nation’s veterans, both past and present - not only with ceremonies, but also by our day-to-day deeds.  

I am very proud that Three Rivers walks that walk. As a couple of examples, we work directly with the Minneapolis VA Hospital to make it possible for more veterans to participate in our many outdoor programs, like archery, fishing, ice fishing and maple syruping. Three Rivers is also an active partner with the Wounded Warrior Project’s Team River Runner, which helps injured veterans participate in kayaking programs.
