Lt. Col. Charpentier, of Oakdale honored for military service at Timberwolves game

An Oakdale man was recently honored for his military service at a Minnesota Timberwolves game.

The basketball team at each home game recognizes troops from the state, as part of Heroes United, a program by the Timberwolves FastBreak Foundation and Roger and Nancy McCabe.

Lt. Col. Luke Charpentier was honored at the March 11 game, when the Timberwolves took on the Milwaukee Bucks.

Charpentier enlisted in the Army at age 18 as a communications specialist. He deployed four times in 2003 to Bosnia, in 2006 and 2009 to Iraq, and he recently returned from Afghanistan.
