This past Veteran’s Day was an epic day and actually even a few days prior as well. All of our veterans organizations in the valley, American Legions, VFW's, VVA, MCL, OPH, etc., all appreciated our community for recognizing and showing their respect to us veterans this special day.

We all want to give a special huge thank you to our students in all of the schools for their effort and hard work producing the superb programs and events they performed. The special hand-written letters and drawings handed out to us at these events meant so much. Another special thank you goes to our teachers and administrators for your extra efforts in making these events happen. Please pass our gratitude to all of your students. To all of these schools we are grateful: Whittier, Emily Dickinson, Meadowlark, Hyalite, Manhattan Christian, Gallatin Gateway, Chief Joseph, Sacajawea, Belgrade High, Bozeman High, Manhattan High, Longfellow, and Monforton.

If we forgot anyone we were not notified, but we still apologize. All of you should be proud of your efforts as it makes this community one of the most patriotic communities we have ever seen and makes us proud to be a small part of it. God bless our troops, all veterans and God bless America!
