Weekend Crashes Kill 8 on Minnesota Roads — Among Deadliest Weekends of the Year

Three of the Victims Were Motorcyclists, Raising Year Total to 53

Patriot's Day

From Minnesotans' Military Appreciation Fund:

This week, as our thoughts turn to a workday morning in New York 12 years ago, it's appropriate to once again make the promise to always remember and honor the sacrifices made by so many on that day and every day thereafter. Closer to home, more than 25,000 men and women from Minnesota have served our country since 9/11. We look to you for help thanking these veterans and their families, and we appreciate your continued support.

Please take a moment today to personally thank a Minnesota veteran.
