Photos from: Minnesota celebrates oldest military branch's 376th birthday

Dec. 13, 2012, marks the 376th birthday of the National Guard. It is a day to reflect on the organization's great accomplishments, its contributions to our nation's history, and its future posture both domestically and around the globe. Soldiers and airmen of the Minnesota National Guard celebrated the proud history of their organization, Dec. 13, at the Veteran's Service Building in Saint Paul. The Association of the United States Army provided the birthday cake and displayed a banner for well-wishers to sign which will be sent to a unit serving overseas. AUSA is a 501c educational organization that is designed to educate the American people about the service, missions, contributions and sacrifices of their service members. "We lobby on your behalf," said Army Col. Don Kerr, retired, president of the Gen. John W. Vessey Jr. Chapter of AUSA. "Membership is under $30 and is open to everyone."
