This event is sponsored by Wounded Warriors-MN, a Minnesota charity dedicated to providing financial and emotional support as well as assistance, respect and honor to the most vulnerable veterans and their families.

"No veteran deserves to be homeless in America, no wounded warrior deserves anything but our utmost respect and support," the group's mission statement said.
