Commissioner Shellito

As we enter the month of November, the major focal point is Veterans Day and the events all across the state of Minnesota. This is a day that all citizens of our nation should stop and reflect on the sacrifices and contributions our Veterans have made for this great nation.  What makes this year’s Veterans Day event special is that it marks the 75th anniversary of the Vietnam War.  I’ve been asked to ‘share my story’ of why this day is special, personal, and etched in my mind forever. Here it goes!
