I spent my morning handing out coffee and donuts to our military men and women at a Minnesota armory with the beyond the yellow ribbon group of Chaska. Since I was not allowed to take photographs I thought that I would do a favorite of my #mnbucketlist spots, one that falls perfectly in line with what I did this morning. The Veterans’ Memorial in Stillwater. It is a multi-#war memorial with a stainless steel spire and a wall of honor that lists the names of all those who lost their lives while on active duty. It spans as far back as the U.S. Civil War to present-time veterans. Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard and Merchant Marines are all represented here. It is so touching to see the respect and honor given, as shown in the thought-provoking quotes covering the walls.
