South Central Beyond the Yellow Ribbon Network
The South Central Beyond the Yellow Ribbon Network, proclaimed July 27, 2012, includes the counties of Blue Earth, Le Sueur and Nicollet, and the cities of Amboy, Eagle Lake, Good Thunder, Lake Crystal, Madison Lake, Mankato, Mapleton, Minnesota Lake, Pemberton, Skyline, St. Clair, Vernon Center, Courtland, Lafayette, Nicollet, North Mankato, St. Peter, Cleveland, Elysian, Heidelberg, Kasota, Le Center, Le Sueur, Kilkenny, Montgomery and Waterville. By synchronizing efforts across these counties, they have partnered with the County Veteran Service Officers to indentify veteran needs. They've reached out to these veterans through a marketing and communication plan aimed at getting the Yellow Ribbon support message to every military family.
Supporting military children is very important to this network. They have committed to identifying the military families within their school districts and have created ongoing training for school administrators and staff.
