I've heard from a lot of our fellow veterans here in Montana and elsewhere across the country over the past few days. We're pissed off. We're disgusted. I'm with you. The last week, especially, pissed me off too.
Helena veteran John Quintrell was awarded the Purple Heart and Bronze Star for his service in Vietnam. He'll be signing copies of his book in Billings on Wednesday (7/7) at Adaptive Performance Center, 1420 Broadwater Ave.
As luck would have it, I was able to catch up with him while he stopped in Jackson Hole, Wyoming- just before he ventured into Yellowstone National Park. Earlier that same week he climbed Devil's Tower- even though he has never rock climbed before.
I was able to tag along with Montana's Congressman Matt Rosendale (R-MT) for a great visit to Horses Spirits Healing just north of Billings. Horses Spirits Healing is a great organization serving veterans, first responders, and their families with therapeutic programs featuring horses.
The last time I was inside Miller's Horse Palace was for a big archery competition that was taking place there. They have another archery shoot coming up, and it's in honor of a fallen warrior from Montana who is beloved by many across the state- Master Sgt. McNary from Lewistown.
