What is Beyond the Yellow Ribbon?
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.
Since the first community was proclaimed Yellow Ribbon in 2008, several have been operating as 501(c)(3) charitable organizations. Additionally, many others are in the process of becoming 501(c)(3).
Why Become a Yellow Ribbon Community?
Since 9/11, thousands of Minnesotans have served the country. By developing a Yellow Ribbon Network, communities unite to honor and embrace those affected by military deployments. The outward showing of support enables successful transition all the way home. The community’s effort transcends the military to any group in need and builds a stronger, more compassionate community.
