Beyond the Yellow Ribbon is a comprehensive program that creates awareness for the purpose of connecting service members and their families with community support, training, services and resources.

We do this by:

• Creating awareness through the Yellow Ribbon Community Campaign and synchronizing sustainable community support networks.

• Connecting and coordinating organizations, agencies and companies to provide resources and support to service members and their families.

• Delivering a series of formal Yellow Ribbon Training events to service members and their families before, during and after deployment.

• Providing an opportunity for Minnesotans to support service members and their families.

Beyond the Yellow Ribbon is united to bring service members all the way home.
