A Beyond the Yellow Ribbon City means volunteers within a city have taken it upon themselves with the help of local officials, church leaders, business leaders, medical professionals, educators, public safety personnel, youth and youth volunteer organizations, veterans groups and the Minnesota National Guard, to assist individuals and families with the day to day issues stemming from military deployment and reintegration (i.e. snow shoveling, mowing, house repairs, child care etc.)

The action plan will result in a city wide network of sustained support that is communicated, understood and trusted by military families; where military residents and their families can access information and services to assist them during the deployment cycle.
