Millions of men and women were and are willing to give everything to serve the country they love. I think about that often, to be 18 or 19 and decide that you want to do something bigger than yourself. That takes an incredibly special person, one who is selfless, brave, and heroic.
Since I get to be in Glasgow for Veterans Day, that means I also have the great honor of hosting our statewide radio talk show from my home VFW Post earlier that same morning! As an Iraq, Afghan veteran I am also a life member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars. While my home is in Billings, my home VFW Post is in Glasgow (the Fort Peck Post).
Veterans Day may be an officially recognized holiday, but many veterans don't get a chance to enjoy the holiday. A bill being heard before the Montana Legislature would make sure that Montana veterans get the day off from work.
As a small Thank You, many businesses offer freebies to our Veterans on Veteran's Day which is officially on Sunday, November 11th, 2018 (Monday the 12th, Observed). Hug a Veteran and make sure they get their free lunch!
