National Day of the Deployed

All citizens of this country should appreciate those servicemen and women that have deployed to a theater of operations in defense of freedom. All veterans have served. Those that have deployed have had to take that extra step and put their lives on the line. “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends” John 15:13. All gave some, some gave all.

NATIONAL DAY OF DEPLOYED HISTORY

Shelle Michaels Aberle founded National Day of the Deployed in 2006. Ms. Aberle approached then North Dakota Governor John Hoeven for support of a North Dakota Proclamation for the day. Governor Hoeven was the first governor in the United States to recognize deployed troops in a formal proclamation.

Aberleā€™s cousin, Bottineau, ND native LTC David Hosna, chose October 26th to recognize troops.  Hosna, who was deployed to Iraq from Kaiserslautern, Germany, was born on October 26th.
