On Saturday, May 28th the community came out in large numbers to support the Bulldogs – who have been deployed to Kuwait for the next year.

The grandstands were packed out with local people who wanted to let the “Bulldogs” know how much they are appreciated.

The Pine City Band started things off with ‘America The Beautiful’ and received a great ovation.

The soldiers were all recognized individually.

Senator Amy Klobuchar also addressed the crowd and the soldiers.

Rep. Chip Cravaack also spoke at the event.

Mayor Jane Robbins was also in attendance.

State Senator Tony Lourey had some comments too…

As did state Rep. Roger Crawford.

The service closed with a prayer as the soldiers were called into active duty.

The “Bulldogs” were seated together, and will now serve side by side in Kuwait.

A trio of queens with crowns to welcome all the supporters!

Another performance by Pine City’s band.
