Montana comes together every Nov. 11 to thank the men and women who fight to keep this state a treasure. Sen. Jon Tester made the trek to Lockwood High School for a ceremony to show his appreciation this Veterans Day.
The ceremony honored the men and women of the Billings area who served in the military, and those who gave their lives in the line of duty.
The Democratic senator was joined by Billings Mayor Bill Cole, Yellowstone County Commissioner Denis Pitman and USS Billings captain, Commander Brett Seeley.
Tester, chairman of the Senate Veteran’s Affairs Committee, focused on the health and well-being of veterans, gave thanks to retired service members, and highlighted recent legislation to aid veterans exposed to toxic burn pits.
“I’m proud our country came together earlier this year to finally do right by our toxic-exposed veterans through my bipartisan PACT Act. This law was made possible by Montana veterans and advocates who never took their foot off the gas, and together we’ll keep fighting to deliver for veterans, just as they have delivered for us,” said Tester.
