Chief Beahen is the chair of Yellow Ribbon Community Committee. The committee is leading our community toward receiving formal recognition from the State, designating Rogers as a certified Yellow Ribbon Community.
Yellow Ribbon Cities are formed to support our current community members and their families who are serving on active duty with the armed forces, as well as former veterans and their families.
Support comes in terms of businesses and organizations helping with recruitment processes for employment that involve our veterans, employee recognition for vets and their families, on-going support of reintegration efforts and counselling, support of community wide events, and finally a commitment to honour those who have faithfully served our country.
As a side benefit, we intend to unify our entire community, by bringing everyone together as one, with a single goal in mind – to provide the appropriate support and care that is deserved of our military veterans and their families.
