"With the subject in a prone position is inherently danger. Risk. The criminal complaint said Floyd had underlying health conditions and potential intoxicants in a system that, combined with the police restraint contributed to his death. The message was clear from police. Feed here on level behavior in this nice peaceably. Yet despite the curve, you the warnings, the heavy equipment and the tear gas. The protesters continued to push the police back past the burned out buildings from Thursday night. Many still smoking people continue to break glasses. They walked this path. A teenager asked me for a band aid. He cut his hand on glass walking through the burned out police station. The situation is incredibly dangerous. The situation is fluid. His dynamic If you care about your community, you've got to put this to inherit that overnight outrage in the cities across the country over the death of George florid while in police custody in Minneapolis of protesters out in the streets for another night despite a mandatory curfew.

"Captain Ashley Morgan and Lieutenant Terrence under shoots. And we want to come to lieutenant under shoots. We've been talking, of course about diversity and inclusion and Miss Laura National Guard something they worked very hard on have for many, many years to try to match the force to the diversity, inclusion of diversity we have here in Minnesota. But one of the things that they do is the National Guard has special emphasis councils that are partnering with the corporate employees, research groups and established yellow ribbon companies, and there are eight of them. Lieutenant, Can you tell us the minister of National Guard has these eight special emphasis councils? Can you describe them to us and tell us about him? I can't come. So you said there are eight so we have the African American heritage. American, India, Native American Asian American Pacific Islander. Disability, employment awareness, Hispanic and Latino heritage Holocaust Remembrance. The LGBT Council and the Women's Council. Lieutenant. How did they work, Do they? How often did they meet? How How do you get on these councils? And what's the mission? So anybody can be a part of the council if they are each led by three individuals. So the executive champion, the advisor and the manager And then each console gets to go out in the community and really Be a part of it as well as bring their community and to the Minnesota National Guard. And how often did they meet in in what is what is their mission? What is it? What is there to find for them to do? Go away Come souls meet monthly, but individually, it really depends how often they need to meet. We talk monthly about different events that are going on what we could do more in the community or internally on what their thoughts are and any interesting topics. They're coming up any concerns. And so within within their specialty. They're just trying to keep up with the community and keep up with what's going on in with what they find or whatever they determined. So they report that back to Colonel Suarez. Do they come back to you on these things? How does that work? If they come back to me, and if there's an event that they want to attend to say what they think it would bring value. We run that through the special program. And then also, Colonel Forrest is included. And so Age, comfortable had an anchor event and as the at least one anger event, and then that's the event that really highlights the council on brings a community together. It provides support and personal and professional development, so events like that. That's what we hope to bring to the Minnesota National Guard members. The girls were as do you monitor those eight councils and get some feedback from them that you can pass on the leadership then? We dio I mean and like terror and alluded Todo each count. It kind of has its own pulse, its kind of its own operations temptress of the level of invasion. They have Again. There are comprised of primarily volunteer people combination of full time in traditional drooling soldiers and airmen, so and each of the groups have a different focus. So something more active. Myself being a part of the Hispanic Latino group for many, many years Now, our big anchor event is thinking a mile. We have an opportunity of a booth and education booth the parts with recruiting battalion as well. It's just a great way to put a face of the national Guard in our communities and a public setting of such thinking of mile where we could engage with the public and educate them who we are and what we do. That must make your soldiers neighbor and feel the terrific that they can include the minister of National Guard with those those eight special emphasis councils and in all of these events and reach out to the community to get to know each other and get more comfortable. Exactly. It also works to fold. It also works back and within our own organization, as council members will bring their initial ideas back to their units and have opportunities to have AH, maybe a cultural day at the unit level. Or bring a soldier story to one of the senior leader meetings away just to have an exchange about culture and ideas and people. And so that soldiers and airmen realized that the folks that that serving different Overstreet of these are members of their own organization and building that report on culture understanding really brings strength back the organization. Very good, sir. We're talking about diversity and inclusion in most of the National Guard and the women's leadership for him on Minnesota military radio in Captain Morgan. I want to come to you now and learn a little bit about the women's leadership Forum. Can you tell us what it is? I think we've talked about this every year for quite a few years now. So how long has this been going on? And what is it all about? It's time. Good morning. Good morning. I'd love to tell you about it. So this year we've got our our women's leadership form on the 12th of September. It's usually always a Saturday in September, Um, this year's 12, and it will be our seventh year of the women's leadership for him. Um, it was really started as an initiative to provide leadership skills and training toe. Women in the Minnesota National Guard provide them sort of an event in an outlet in order for them to grow and flourish. And it's really grown from there. It's become this sort of broad anchor event that had a lot of soldiers and airmen attend both junior and senior across the range of the organization as well. Some of our civilian Both state government local government on civilian contractors at work in the National Guard. They all come to this event usually a per year. Ondas can become this opportunity for both networking and personal professional growth for for both our men and women clearly focused on women's issues and leisure development in how we improve and grow. That particular segment of our population across the ranks. Captain who can participate this year and how I'm actually this year due to Cove.

"In our Minnesota National Guard. There are more than 13,000 brave, hardworking and dedicated women and men who come from many different walks of life. Soldiers and airmen of every creed, color and background imaginable, served together with distinction and honor. Despite our differences, we wear the same uniform, served the same state and salute the same flag in the Minnesota National Guard. There are pilots and military police mechanics and cooks, logistics specialist and cyber experts. These brave soldiers and airmen foster a culture of a Septimus dignity and respect. Regardless of our differences together, we become a team standing shoulder to shoulder to protect our great state and the United States of America. Be it here at home overseas or wherever the call may take us our differences and our diversity are what make your Minnesota National Guard strong. Thank you, General. Best. For more information, Please go to Minnesota military radio dot com Tent Colonel Eduardo's for his services, the Minnesota National Guards, director of diversity and inclusion. Where is responsible for the research, development and implementation of the agin it general strategic diversity and inclusion in the initiative's girls for is welcome back to Minnesota Military radio. Thanks for having me back. Appreciate, huh? Paralytic. The last time we talked on the show. At that time you were serving his commander is recruiting and retention bed Battalion. You're over there for several years, and I know that we talked to several times about diversity in the Minnesota National Guard and the fact that Your efforts in recruiting were to try to make the Minnesota National Guard Mirror the diversity that we have here in Minnesota. So you've been you're pretty familiar with that issue. I am. Yeah. We had a lot of success with the last couple years and I would contribute to a number in business time. Not only has Our recruiter become more closely where they created a servant where they're putting out of high school to come more diverse, infect the population in general, Minnesota has changed Consequently. For doing the right things were getting the message. But enough people you're gonna touch the various communities that we serve in. And invariably we've done a much better job specifically and raised in ethnic ethnicity. We're doing quite well. Then, Colonel you've rotated out of that position is Commander recruiting retention and you're now service Ministry of national director of diversity and inclusion. Then, can you tell us your mission Sounds like it's broadened because now it's not only matched the diversity of Minnesota but make sure that all of the soldiers and airmen of the minister of National Guard are included in in every aspect of being soldiers and airmen here in Minnesota. No, I think it's well stated. I guess I'll start with this. I think as a change agent for the organization to be impossible for us to achieve our objective without having a top down approach, and we've had and continue to head the leadership But the right vision that kind of focus our efforts since that said Definitely do it. Diversity. Inclusion is tied to the General's by priorities Have I do so A quick recap People First Leader Development Organization safety security, physical property responsibility. And he communicating partner of these five different prior is there's three that touched had the strongest next for diversity inclusion. Those are people first later Development Committee in partner Which really is will refocus or everything. Could we create that inclusive organization you're talking about? The colonel back when you were the commander recruiting retention. You had three areas You have to look at. You had to bring in theory listed VOCs. She had to make sure that the warrant officer positions were filled in and you had to make sure that recruited and put in Officer positions and I would imagine within those three areas. We also had to focus on diversity and make sure that we have all all of the people in Minnesota have opportunities to move up through each of those being soldier warrant officer and officer So there we have good balance. No, that's true. And I think that goes goes back in. And why is it important? Teo focus on diversity as a starting point. You know, the more folks we have of the different backgrounds a larger population of Italian having organizations. So when it comes to creating those new officers and warn officers, which invariably come within our own ranks, if you don't have the requisite diversity in the organization is very difficult. To start moving people into those mid level grade senior grades in the organization. Uh, it's a proven fact that if you look at what your members look to, in terms of leadership, inventor shipping coaching, they want to see people like them. Move of the organization toe look too It gives them hope gives them a pathway to success. And so it starts with the organization. If you don't have a good, diverse population, it's very difficult to move forward. Colonel House of How important Is it Over the last appointment on the radio now for 10 years, and in that time We saw the Brigadier General Sandy Best was the first woman general officer in Minnesota. And since that time we've got major general Joanna Clybourn and bring your general Stephanie Horvath. Moved into the federal officers position. I would think when it comes to the diversity and inclusion that sends a really good signal to the rest of the force. It does. You know I didn't get so busy caught up in the day They passed getting permission and that we don't stop to do a little more reflection. And I think that we started to do that. I think you were ever since. The issues of joyful in the last few months has really drawing us to be more introspective as you look at herself, and so I asked the hard questions and how we're doing. The intricate has by all means having people move up in the ranks. For their 1000 skills is a powerful message to the divers force that we have. Conserve. The other thing I learned from you over the last few years is every year. You have to replace about 10% of the force because you have people that have put in their time and they retired. You got some people that leave You're constantly putting in the new people young people at the bottom so they could move up through the ranks. And then when you bring in the diverse people that we have across Minnesota when they can see and CEOs and more enough, sirs and Officers of the look like them and have their background that must give them hope that they can. They can do anything as well. Oh, absolutely, I think retention the other piece. I do inclusive environment pretension Because all this time and energy and recruiting the talent across Minnesota really have an irresponsibility ensure they stay in the organization for all the right reasons and when they feel they're part of the organization That investment will just continue to deliver double as they stay in and contribute to help us accomplish state federal missions, So it's absolutely imperative that they feel they want to stay here for those types of reasons. Colonel that might just put maybe me, but it looks to me like those few years you spent in recruiting, retention and working on diversity have given you a really good base of operations and knowledge. So that you could serve now is Minister guards director of diversity and inclusion. Absolutely, I think standpoint of understanding how we bring these folks organization But now seen on the other side, you know, Granted, I've been involved with the special emphasis councils, which and I know that there were 10 other shoots will speak momentarily about. So I have seen the other side of it about why is it important to acknowledge? Different groups represent our officer and enlisted ranks on an airman and soldiers to cross state, so it's see both sides of being very enlightening for me. Research been great to talk to you today and have your back and you and we're going to spend the next segment, talking both about the National Guard, special Emphasis Councils and about the women's leadership form. Can you introduce the two officers that you have with you today? Yes, I have. You know, my partner in crime, so to speak. I have Lieutenant Terence Hunter shoots and she is the manager for the special of this council. But we will talk about later. I know I have Captain Ashley Morgan. Ooh! Ah, only works at the division headquarters here in Rose, But she's also the advisor to the.

"EMS law enforcement sheriff's department and national guardsmen as they seek to provide safety in our community we've watched these groups grow both in craziness and we watch them also grow in challenging approaches that we have had to adapt to we have watched them take on average where literally there are five thousand of them surrounding a building trashing the building and then when confronted running back under the cover of darkness into residential areas we have watched them try destroyed downtowns and it's hard to drive to one of our downtowns without seeing the plywood did stop whether it was as a preventative measure or simply to home perhaps the holes that they had punctured into the buildings that support and are there but the anchors of our downtown areas we are adapting to their tactics we have made more grass virtually every day and we are focused on the fact that as this is not a protest where this is not a demonstration well that we will always and I repeat always respect everyone's first amendment rights those right stop the end of a Molotov cocktail thrown into a an open business those right stop at the point that you look at the liquor store in the neighborhood was like stop when you look at the gas station the little mom and pop gas station in the neighborhood the Minnesota public safety and Minnesota's National Guard are gearing up we're getting bigger and we are changing our approach because this is intolerable and we are coming to stop it I don't want anyone to make any mistakes about that we will make sure that those folks that come out today that want to mourn Mr Loyce passing that their rights are in fact protected these riders are in fact trampling on those rights by making it too dangerous for good people to speak their minds and we can not as a community we cannot as Minnesotans we cannot as members of the Twin Cities community tolerate that so you can expect to see law enforcement the National Guard to state county and local in lockstep tonight preventing responding rescuing and repelling attacks on our businesses what our personal safety on a personal liberties of the Twin Cities area at this time but introduce general Jensen the Minnesota National Guard his comments from the commissioner of public safety in Minnesota John Herrington John Jensen is Major General with the Minnesota National Guard well I don't think I could doubt speak with anymore passion in the four gentleman that you spoke in front of me so what I will do is just give you a quick update on the last forty eight hours of the Minnesota National Guards participation in this operation twenty four hours ago we had approximately four hundred guardsmen I stayed active duty in support of the governor's executive order as mentioned by the governor yesterday we reached apart there reached a peak the trance or National Guard never been asked before over seven hundred soldiers and airmen mobilized in support of the governor's executive order and while it was the largest mobilization in as commissioner Harrington described the largest law enforcement operation in Minnesota's history it was not enough early yesterday we began mobilizing additional soldiers and we expected and we expect by noon to have two thousand five hundred soldiers and airmen mobilized and in support of the governor's executive order but that's not enough the governor just announce the full mobilization the Minnesota National Guard for the first time since World War two what does that mean it means we're all in we're all in with the two mers to my left their citizens their communities that they represent and we're all in to to law enforcement professionals to my right supporting them to ensure we bring stability and peace back to our two great cities but even that's not enough as governor walls just laid out we had a conversation with secretary of defense and the chairman of joint chiefs of staff we are requesting for national level resources to come to the state to make key contributions to the operation the Christian Herrington has laid out start towards our two mers into our two law enforcement professionals thank you governor the Minnesota National Guard is all and the general John Johnson of the Minnesota National Guard thank you governor I don't intend on rehashing the ground that has been covered by all the folks up here saying the important things inside but I do stand here as chief of the Minnesota state patrol to say that we have done something that we've never done in the history of our organization all the way back to nineteen twenty nine in terms of the mobilization our state troopers from all across Minnesota that have come to the metro area to do whatever we can to get back to what we believe and as an organization and as a Minnesota state patrol there we reflect our core values of respect integrity courage honor and excellence that's who we are and that's who we believe Minnesotans are to and our job is to get out there in the middle of the mission that we're confronted with right now to stop the criminal behavior that we have been seeing and to prevent their criminal behavior that we regretfully anticipate we will see tonight and into the near future we're working as hard as we can because I've heard from plenty of Minnesotans if they don't like what they see they don't think of what is going on represents who we are in Minnesota and they want to help so we need your support we need your prayers I mean we we need your thoughts as we work as hard as we possibly can to get Minnesota out of this current situation and stabilized so that we can move forward and make the state what we believe it should be one that is safe for every single person who lives or visits this wonderful state thank you thank you colonel Langer Minnesota before I take questions I just like to I think you got an assessment on the ground I I am certainly not going to make light of of the seriousness of where we're at for those who are wondering if we were chemically or something happened I think you need to understand even going in to last night this was the largest force and exhausted much of what we had going into that the professionalism and the tactics were by the book one of the things is when you're a force of good and law and order you play by the rules when you are bent on destruction and harm and chaos you don't have to do that and it makes it very very difficult and I think it's important to note to that this call and the call up of the guard and the attempt to do this is only going to make it more difficult tonight the people listening do not see this as a deterrent they are not somehow searching their soul deciding that this was stupid and destructive and wrong of what they did this is the challenge they were looking for the call will go out to join and the call will be there to try and break the back of civil society and the people putting it forward so Minnesotans I'm not telling you and and trying to make this any lighter this is going to be very difficult and to set expectations they will slip away and they will start fires they will do that no matter how many people we have on the ground with where they were at our goal is is to decimate that force as quickly as possible they have is to protect life property and restore that order but they will bring everything that they have to this so I think it is very clear and I would make that statement and it will use social media they will do whatever they want to do our expectation is to have the curfew in place our expectation is to restore order it will be a dangerous situation on the streets tonight we will do everything in our power to restore that order that Minnesotans expect that Minnesotans demand but as each of these folks that it is going to take all of us I am grateful you our neighbors our fellow Americans who are helping and who are sending prayers and thoughts to the fellow governors I am grateful to the president and the administration for continuing to be on the line and offer and provide assistance when needed and I'm most grateful to Minnesotans we built this state we built the north star everything that we believe in these people are trying to destroy so if you are on the streets tonight it is very clear you're not with us you do not share our values and we will use the full strength of goodness and righteousness to make sure that this sounds without I'd be glad to answer any questions along with the folks up here Peter about ten thousand every five thousand crossover yeah yeah let these folks go yeah I know it's a good question with Peter's question is about how do we know this and I want to just be very clear as I said earlier in the week this is not about saying all this is an awesome everybody from everywhere else we understand that the catalyst for this was Minnesotans and Minnesotans Minnesotans inability to deal with any quality in equities and quite honestly the racism that has persisted I am not denying that but what we're at right now and we're trying to get numbers on this and I will try and what I'm asking the media to help us on we're gonna start releasing who some of these people are and they'll be able to start tracing that that history of where they're at and what they're doing on the dark web in how they're organizing but I'm not trying to say that I think our best estimate right now that I heard is about twenty percent is what we think are Minnesotans and about eighty percent or outside so I'm I'm not trying to deflect in any way I'm not trying to say there aren't Minnesotans amongst this group we know that we have folks that that may not be there too but the vast majority right now and I think that the difference is and this is where mayor Carter may fry spoke eloquently on this our heart and our solidarity are with folks who understand what happened Monday night to George Floyd must must see justice and we must fix but these folks are not them so I I well that's a good question and we'll get more data here you wanna follow up on that all right yes Sir who are these people what's happening right now yeah yeah John will talk about that as we've begun making arrests we have a gun analyzing the data of who we've arrested and begun actually doing what you would think is almost very similar to our cold it it's it's contact tracing how poor they associated with what platforms are they advocating for and we have seen things like white supremacists organizer's web posted things on platforms about coming to Minnesota we are checking to see to the folks that we have that we have made a restaurant that we have information are they connected to those platforms we have seen fliers about protests where folks have talked about they're gonna get their loot on tonight and we're checking to see are they part of an organized criminal organization and if so what is that organization and how is that how's the holiday organized we have been working with both our state our county our local and our federal partners to start looking at issues around is this organized crime is this an organized cell of terror where are those where do these folks where is the linkage is what we're doing and so we are in the process right now of building that information network building that Intel effort so that we can link these folks together figure out what the organizations that have created this and then just understand how do we go after them legally that is absolutely part and parcel of our mission we are in fact public safety and we recognize that there are there are legal issues involved here but we are not going to tolerate the violence and the destruction that they're using as a cover for the other illegal activity following the release.

"Serves as the state of Minnesota as the executive director for the department of military affairs the state agency that administers the National Guard he retired from the Minnesota National Guard as a colonel in March two thousand eight after serving in a myriad of rolls over a twenty eight year military career he received a Brevard promotion to brigadier general in March twenty seventeen and reddit general dunker welcome to Minnesota military radio thanks Tom great to be here again it's always good to have you back Sir hope you're staying well during the covert crisis I am Tom along with about twenty five percent of our agency employees I've been able to work from home predominantly here since the governor put the restrictions I'm working and actually working out better than expected are con connectivity has been very good we've been doing a lot of video teleconference meetings but basically we're we're able to do the things that we were able to do before just a little bit differently a lot of contracts signatures going electronically that used to be wet signature but it was time for us to make that transition anyway so this is been a good forcing function for some of those things very good Sir I'm hoping you can explain to our listeners the the duties in the position the what the Minnesota department of military affairs does we've had to of course general Jensen on the on the show many many times and he's referred to as the adjutant general of the Minnesota National Guard but he's also a heads up to Minnesota department of military affairs as a commissioner any servers as such he serves on the board with the governor yes so back in nineteen twenty one some federal law was passed in the Senate something make they called model statutes out to the states to adopt within the states to set up the way the National Guard is organized today so you probably understand that the National Guard is in this weird state and federal situation where most of the time the National Guard service under title thirty two of US code which means they are under the control of the governors and the governor functions as our commander in chief when they're called to active service in support of the federal government a sermon titled ten because ten ten U. S. code is the part that governs military activities in the in the United States armed forces so title ten and thirty to establish this dual status National Guard it is mostly under the control of the states but also has some responsibilities to the federal government and they have special authority granted to the adjutant general they have authority in some title ten over federal law really over federal resources while serving in title thirty two under state control so the department of military affairs is the cabinet level agency inside state government that has a responsibility to oversee and support the activities of the National Guard and the adjutant general serves as the military leader of the National Guard but he's also the commissioner of the Minnesota department of military affairs thank you Sir were speaking with the Mister don Kerr the executive director of the Minnesota department of military affairs on Minnesota military radio so done can you explain to us what is the name of the Minnesota department of military affairs so our role and my role as the executive director I I basically work for the adjutant general to help oversee the state agency component of the National Guard and we provide support by doing things like providing security at camp Ripley at the air bases and at the army aviation support facilities we provide other services through something called a master cooperative agreement where we actually work on behalf of the federal government sort of functioning like a contractor to do things like planning facilities maintenance activities and executing those and other things like that and one of the things I think we're gonna talk about today is the maintenance of our fleet of armories that have both federal and state connections to so that that's kind of what we spend our time doing Donna Dick we had you on and and I think at the time it might have been commissioner key but a couple years ago we were talking about the thirty year plan that's meant that you have developed to take care of those Irish and I'm sure that's a that's a work in process it is time we've got about sixty three armories other books that there is a little bit day today because we're working on building some and we're also someone some we we do have a couple of facilities that we divest of their last five years or so but we've got our oldest armor is the new Walmart Lee that's a hundred and five years old and of course our newest ones are still water facilities came on board about two years ago and we're going to be opening a new armory at Arden hills even though we've got two other relatively new armors Arden hills but a new home for the thirty fourth infantry division that's currently under construction and we expect to occupy that this fall so obviously varying in range from one to a hundred and five there are a lot of different maintenance requirements and they have different needs and of course different communities have different uses for those armories as well so to figure out how to use the dollars that we receive from the state and federal government to get our best bang for the Buck to keep our older facilities renovated and construct new facilities is an ongoing challenge and of course a lot of variables there because we never know for sure what the federal dollars are going to be available and at the same time we don't know what state dollars are going to be available so it's a it's a delicate balancing act and that's why we think we have to look pretty deep to always have a plan ready so that we can either execute the planner **** the plan a little bit if we don't get the funding that we wander xcelerated plant in some cases if we get unexpected funding that allows us to do renovations or replacements sensors this time of year when the legislature is in session I know that you spend a lot of time over on the hill trying to answer some budget questions and and see what your budget might be looking like next year well certainly not so much this year Tom the legislature is doing like good Minnesotans everywhere they they figured out how to operate in the current constraints but there's a lot less face to face contact we are hoping that there's going to be a bonding bill this year and I know there's a lot of question about what the right thing to do is what I think our commissioner Francis gonna go give some insight to the legislature next week about what they think the economic forecast is but of course their position they they Minnesota management budget I think the government's position is that you know bonding bills are good economic stimulus to keep jobs moving in Minnesota and in that current bonding bill the governor has supported a request on behalf of nearly twelve million dollars eleven point eight nine five for for projects our rose mine armory is ready for a redesign and and and renovation and conceptual big we decided to split that project into design and construction because we think there we're gonna find a lot of things and design that will give us a better idea what the actual cost for the Rosemont renovation will be we also got a five million dollars on the safe side and that'll be matched by five million on the bedside for renovation and the Moorhead readiness center three point two five for Marshall and two point two for Fergus falls so we've kind of got a little bit of a mixture between metropolitan and non metropolitan areas there but all those facilities are due for renovation and we're hopeful that we'll get favorable consideration from the legislature as they move toward a bonding bill hopefully this year sensors these state legislatures they got their hands full with this covert crisis but we're also in a situation where interest rates are as low as they they've been in my lifetime and hopefully they understand that and and that they'll find some of these projects because there's as cheap as it's ever going to get yes I had to borrow money this is the time to do it apparently and they've been very generous with us pond two years ago we received that almost thirteen million dollars in the bonding bill and the projects that were currently conducting their resented being the same cloud readiness center we just wrapped up the wedding a readiness center we're working on the grand rapids readiness center and we're about to kick off on the Brainerd readiness center so the projects that we requested two years ago or are well in hand moving forward but you know the challenges when you have a large number of buildings like that he eventually all the roofs go bad and and if you figure twenty to thirty years on a roof just for the roofs alone we would continue to get into about three facilities every year just to keep the roost in good order now we can stretch out a little bit sometimes because sometimes they hold up better than than that but general rule of thumb is we we try to do three renovations a year and so we were more or less on that track right now if we get these for approved over the coming biennium that'll be I guess I'll be here over two years so that's just over three here that that's on the glide path to where we think we need to be successful to be able to keep our armories in good repair and available for training our soldiers in bay available was a community resources for the people living out in greater Minnesota particularly very good sure we have to take a short break would come back winners speak more with don curves executive director of the

"Host Tom Lyons ribbon visiting with the missile was engine general Major General John Jensen in general we were talking about twenty nineteen and I understand you've got a couple units that once some pretty nice awards last year yeah that's right twenty nineteen was very good to the Minnesota National Guard in terms of our national level recognition of units and and individuals and just you know the name a few our army national guard medical old units were acknowledge for their work in now in medical readiness and we want what's called the the the large state award for medical readiness the one forty eighth up into a loose was recognized by the Air Force association is an outstanding Air National Guard flying unit award they also earned the twenty nineteen a general Welsh airforce one award are very interesting we just found out this week the thirty fourth MP company for the first time ever in the Army National Guard our MP company was awarded the Major General band holds award for the best MP company in the army and as I said first time Army National Guard unit I received the award then we have some great soldiers and airmen to receive recognition as well certain first question for State Farm was awarded recognition by the society of American Indian government employees a CW three Harry Ballard was the black engineer of the of the year award a twenty eighteen Air National Guard athlete of the year if you will the Heisman Trophy for the Air National Guard how I like to call that tex Arden Amy make Mellon twenty nineteen Air National Guard senior NCO the your master sergeant mark Jr convicts from the one forty eighth as it relates to our excellence and diversity major Corey Robinson from the one thirty third in the state headquarters was was awarded that's just a it's just a handful of the many awards that our units are soldiers near mint earned over twenty nineteen so we're very proud of all of them it's just fantastic to be able to recognize those units and soldiers and airmen sure you got some great soldiers airmen out there doing a good job for the state in the country and treat your problem general we talked about the in the last segment just briefly your state partners which we have you have a federal mission you have state mission but you've got a couple of European state partners Norway and Croatia can you explain why the death but along standing why do we have those partnerships yeah well the you know the Norwegian exchange from there in a region home guard partnership goes back over forty six years now where we have sent proximity hundred guardsmen over the Norway they send approximately a hundred soldiers are way and it's just so a way to connect with you know first of all a NATO ally ana with this but it's also to our heritage our lineage of the Scandinavian heritage in which allows us to stay connected to to that as an organization and and I've been able to participate that as you know a young soldier is a senior officer now's the edge in general and everyone who has that experience will talk about what a highlight that is in their career whether there are Norwegian often guard soldier coming this way or a Minnesota National Guard soldier mingle in that way so we're incredibly proud of that relationship this year will be the forty seventh anniversary of that exchange and then as part of the state partnership program Croatia and Minnesota have been partners for twenty three years now as of this summer so will be hit in our twenty fourth year in the summer of twenty twenty a just a great relationship and I can tell you it's at the highest levels I've had the opportunity to meet with the president of Croatia on a couple occasions been able to meet with and discuss challenges and issues with both the chief of defense and the minister of defense I'm in constant contact with the defense attache in question do you see as it relates to this fabulous relationship that we've had and so was Croatia continues to professionalism Richards from forces were right along with them during that process because we learned so much from them as well what what a great partnership that is Sir we were we were able couple years ago to go on the Norwegian exchanger self in the Norwegian home gardeners of wonderful folks and what a great relationship there that's gonna be everybody's gonna be volunteering for that exchange once in awhile yeah we have no problem with finding people to fill that fill that triple over there Sir twenty twenties coming up but it looks like you're at the top of the training regimen in the rotation again you've got a lot of stuff coming up yeah you know it's a big event for this coming year as it relates to train will be then the national training center to a rotation that our first armored brigade combat team I will do so that you know they'll be about thirty eight hundred soldiers from Minnesota that will go over to the Mojave Desert and do their second generation of in to see and traditionally that has been used as a platform then to deploy the unit and a theater and so meanwhile we're not really talking about the deployment piece of that quite yet we know that it's it's possible that that that that could happen but I I fully believe this is that you know as a mention this is the second generation for the first brigade at the national training center they're just gonna absolutely not get out of the park and and be one of the you know the highest rated rotations that the army guard in the United States Army has put through that training center so you know it's a very difficult rotation but it's it's the best learning environment the United States Army has the Sir that's in my understanding that's essentially a few weeks out in the desert and California up against the army's best and some of the some of the most realistic training we can get yeah you make it sound kind of nice Tom it's not it's grueling it it's absolutely grueling it's taxing is growing though that the weather is is is horrible on a best day it's it's a couple weeks but it's actually more than a couple weeks because all the movement equipment that goes out there the maintenance of the equipment after the rotation the movement of equipment back here it is it is a very long a rigorous process but it builds scale it builds proficiency it builds our leaders and our soldiers and to and to be in the best cell it's a challenge but as the Minnesota National Guard always as will rise up to that challenge into well Sir we watch that closely last time logistics involved incredible the load up all of that equipment by train ship it out to the desert the use of hard ship it back you're fortunate to have a big maintenance facility up at camp Ripley so they can get it ready for the next mission right away yeah you know we talk about this is first brigade involved in this but it's really the whole team effort across the entire Minnesota Army National Guard as it relates to serving with first brigade there but ensuring that their set up for success before and after that rotation so busy year coming up in twenty twenty and after the NTC probably busy year twenty twenty one oh yeah apps absolutely you know I think one other item I like to talk about just real quick and twenty twenty is the thirty fourth infantry division headquarters is right

And I went to college in grad school have more of a human services type field. And then I was lucky enough ticket kind of several opportunities in my career where I was kind of bridging that gap between doing human services type stuff, but for the military and that landed me here over in family programs. So it's it's been a great wild ride the last year that I've I've been around. So captain, we're gonna talk about that in a minute. But we also have Tiffany Tiffany Leschi with us differently.
