A bill that would create a special day — a Veterans of Foreign Wars Day — is moving ahead in the Minnesota House, after being passed last month by the Senate.

On Monday, the House Agriculture, Rural Economies and Veterans Affairs Committee approved the plan, which calls for May 28 to be the big day, says the House Public Information Services. That’s the day the Veterans of Foreign Wars organization was founded by Congress 111 years ago.

Next up: the House Finance Committee.
