      EVENT DETAILS
      Saint Paul to Kuwait IV - 2019

      Volunteers will travel to Kuwait to grill and serve steaks to soldiers while at the same time volunteers will serve a meal to family members at Saint Paul RiverCentre.

      Members of Serving Our Troops and the Minnesota National Guard are available in advance and day-of the event to talk about the deployment, the volunteer project, what it takes to coordinate a global meal event, and the incredible value of this type of support for Minnesota soldiers and their families.

      About the event
      On Saturday, May 25, more than 600 members of the Minnesota National Guard’s 34th Red Bull Infantry Division, currently deployed to Kuwait, will be treated to a special meal when volunteers from Serving Our Troops will grill and serve steak dinners in Kuwait. At the same time, families of the deployed service members will gather at Saint Paul RiverCentre for a steak meal. The two events will be linked together via a special live video program.

      This Memorial Day weekend dinner marks the 14th event the Minnesota-based volunteer group has coordinated to support the troops and their families. At home and overseas, the Serving Our Troops project bring families together via live video for "a simple thing, dinner with the family."

      More than 600 members of the Minnesota National Guard’s 34th Red Bull Infantry Division are currently deployed across the Middle East providing leadership, command, and planning for exercises as a part of Operation Spartan Shield. They are building partner nation military capacity across the region, promoting regional self-reliance and increased security. The Red Bulls are responsible for operations across approximately 10 countries.

      The deployed Soldiers come from more than 220 communities throughout Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, North and South Dakota, and several other states. They are expected to return home from the deployment in late summer of 2019.
