The Minnesota State Veterans Memorial Association is an organization that serves as an auxiliary service to the Minnesota State Veterans Cemetery in Little Falls. On Tuesday, they held a meeting at the Little Falls American Legion.
The MSVMA was founded in 1985 by soldiers in Morrison County. They saw that the land just outside of Camp Ripley would be ideal for the first Minnesota State Veterans Cemetery, Fort Snelling Cemetery being the only National Cemetery in Minnesota.
“The first cemetery in the state of Minnesota was right here in Little Falls,” said former MSVMA President Phil Ringstrom. “So that’s an honor, that’s a legacy that I think this community, this area, central Minnesota, needs to be quite proud of.”
