Email News Alerts

Minnesota needs to support their troops.

That's the message Kevin Dunaway and Merrilee Carlson are spreading throughout the state. Dunaway, a 30-plus-year Marine veteran, and Carlson, who lost her son a year ago in Iraq, are traveling to different media outlets in the state to let people know the troops need everyone's support.


"You know Minnesotans, unless we get really riled up about something, we don't speak out," Carlson said.
