FARGO, N.D. — The Military Child Education Coalition has needed to cancel a two-day workshop originally scheduled to take place this week in Wahpeton, N.D. The Living in the New Normal Institute: Helping Children Thrive Through Good and Challenging Times was initiated to outline specific community resources, deployment information and practical strategies for encouraging resilience in all children from April 19-20 at Baymont Inn and Suites.
Plans are being made to host the workshop at a later date in a location that may generate stronger attendance in the state. For more information, contact Beth Sandeen, North Dakota National Guard Youth Services Program coordinator, at 701-451-6109 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Since the 2001 terrorist attacks on America, the North Dakota National Guard has mobilized more than 3,800 Soldiers and more than 1,800 Airmen in support of the Global War on Terrorism. Currently, nearly 300 North Dakota Guardsmen are serving overseas while more than 4,000 remain in the state for emergency response and national defense. For every 10,000 citizens in North Dakota, 65 serve in the North Dakota National Guard, a rate that’s more than four times the national average.
