Beyond the Yellow Ribbon

This program was developed to assist our local military service members, veterans and their families during and after their service to our country. The UWH acknowledges and supports our service members and veterans and through the Beyond the Yellow Ribbon program, can ease their transition back to the community and their families. Family members also need to be supported during their loved one’s service and their sacrifice and commitment recognized. The Cottage Grove Beyond the Yellow Ribbon supports the Hastings area during the interim while planning continues for the Hastings Beyond the Yellow Ribbon.
