Military Family Day

Guest Speaker John Kriesel

Join us for Military Family Day on November 12! This event is open to the community, so invite family, friends, and community members!

When SSG John Kriesel lost his legs and two buddies in a roadside bomb explosion, no one expected him to survive. He died three times on the operating table. He went through thirty-five surgeries and months of recovery and rehabilitation. This is not just another war story. This is the story of an ordinary young man who overcame extraordinary challenges with a lot of help from others and he emerged stronger and more in love with his country, his wife, his children, and ultimately, his own life. Join us as he shares his extraordinary story!

This event is free for all students, staff, faculty and community members.

November 12th at 7 p.m.

Dakota County Technical College

John will also be signing his book Still Standing.
