Minnesota Red Bulls
The Hennepin County Sheriff’s Deputies Association has voted overwhelmingly in favor of incumbent Sheriff Rick Stanek’s opponent on Wednesday. Minneapolis Police Deputy Chief Eddie Frizell received 75 percent of the votes, while Stanek only received nine percent. Sixteen percent of votes were to endorse neither candidate.
What began as an event to honor the National Guard’s Red Bulls has evolved into a celebration honoring all branches of the Armed Forces. On Sunday, North Branch was the site of Military Appreciation Day. Young and old turned out to help raise money to support the men and women in uniform, serving across the globe.
The women who make up 16 percent of the Minnesota National Guard are waiting to see if they’ll be assigned to combat units.
The commander of Minnesota’s famed “Red Bulls” will speak at the official State of Minnesota Veterans Day program Sunday.
Another round of Minnesota Red Bulls are returning home, but some family members are upset about the timing.
