In every war or police action that has occurred in what is now North Dakota, the men and women of the territory/state reported for duty in all branches of the military. North Dakota soldiers have served in roles ranging from privates to the Joint Chiefs of Staff; but, no matter their station, from the dense tropical jungles of the Philippines to the poppy-covered fields of Belgium and even to the deserts of Iraq, they have served with distinction and honor.
