On Monday, November 11, Missoula will join the rest of the United States in honoring its veterans on Veterans Day. As has been the case for over three decades, a special ceremony, put on by Forgotten Warriors Post 101, will be held in front of the Missoula County Courthouse.

“This year’s theme is ‘For Those With Wounds That Show No Scars,’ about the emotional psychological damage that’s done to soldiers and veterans by war,” said Forgotten Warriors Post 101 member Dan Gallagher. ”This year, addressing that theme, and also speaking on behalf veterans and veterans issues will be Senator Max Baucus and Lieutenant Governor John Walsh.”

Although heated tents will be provided, attendees are asked to dress warmly as the memorial will be held outside. Gallagher said the ceremony is held outside because that is where the soldiers had to fight.

“The ceremony will be at 11 a.m. on Monday, and it’ll last about an hour,” Gallagher said. “It’ll be at the county courthouse grounds by the doughboy statue. People can show up, pay tribute, and hear about the issues facing veterans.”

Veterans Day has been held on November 11 since 1918 when it was originally established as Armistice Day at the end of World War One. The day is now set aside to honor all American veterans, of which, there are an estimated 100, 000 living in Montana.
