Klobuchar Salutes Veterans

Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar says this Memorial Day is a good time to remember Minnesotans who fought and died for the country.

Klobuchar says Minnesota was one of the first to send troops to fight in the civil war, just three years after Minnesota became a state. The First Minnesota Regiment was sent in as a counter attack at Gettysberg. Of the 262, 215 were either killed or wounded. The First Minnesota became the Minnesota National Guard.
