"There are not words to express the humility I feel during this holiday season for the unbelievable effort that Dennie Meyer and the Blue Star Mothers of Minnesota have put forth to ensure that 'No Homeless Veteran is Left Behind.'
Blue Star Mothers is an organization that dedicates its time to meeting the needs of Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom veterans by sending packages overseas, conducting fundraisers and getting out the word that veterans of our most recent wars are not forgotten.
However, their generosity is not limited to those veterans only. Through their tireless efforts, and those of an uncounted number of generous individuals, churches, schools, families and companies, the VA Medical Center in St. Cloud has realized a greater outpouring of support this year, both in cash and clothing, than at any time since our homeless program has been in existence."
