Beyond The Yellow Ribbon Prepares For Big Troop Sendoff Tomorrow (Audio)

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

There is a big deployment ceremony happening  on Saturday in Pine City at the fair grounds as members of Troop B, 1st Squadron 94th Cavalry will be heading to Kuwait for approximately a year.

Heather Rank works with the Yellow Ribbon, and was kind enough to talk with WCMP. Having been through this process personally, Rank was able to help us understand what these military families are feeling as this is all approaching.
