ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Republicans who control the Minnesota Senate are having military veterans lead the Pledge of Allegiance each Monday.

The Senate Republican Caucus announced the plan on Monday, when an Army veteran who enlisted 60 years ago this week led the Pledge. The veteran is Herb Cook, who works for the Senate’s Sergeant at Arms office.

Senate President Michelle Fischbach says her caucus hopes to honor veterans and start a new tradition.
