Saint Paul to Djibouti - 2020

Serving Our Troops held its 15th project Saint Paul to Djibouti on Friday, June 19th.

This was a very special event uniting Minnesotans from across the State to offer a message of thanks and support to our deploying Minnesota National Guard soldiers and their families.  The event featured the Official Deployment Ceremony of the 2-135 Infantry Battalion and a first ever Statewide Virtual Cookout.

Soldiers at Camp Ripley enjoyed steaks from the grill while their families grilled meals at home having been treated to steak meal packs with all the fixings at Saint Paul's Mancini's Char House and Rochester's Canadian Honker. The entire event was streamed live via numerous platforms, video lines opened for soldiers to talk with loved ones, great food, special guests, music, and more.
