Minnesota’s Beyond the Yellow Ribbon recognition program synchronizes community, county and company resources in support of service members, veterans and military families. Yellow Ribbon Companies actively recruit, hire and retain currently serving and veteran employees, develop support policies and resources for military-connected employees, and partner with other organizations to synchronize efforts within local communities.
