Montana veterans and their families have sacrificed so much in the defense of our freedoms and our way of life. Many Montana veterans have continued their service by helping others in their communities. Now it is time to honor those individuals. Congressman Greg Gianforte opened nominations for the Montana Congressional Veteran Commendation.

““More than one in ten Montanans have served and sacrificed for our country,” Gianforte said. “After their time in uniform, many have continued to serve our communities, giving their time and talents in support of others. They deserve to be recognized. I ask Montanans to help identify and nominate these outstanding men and women, so we can honor and recognize them.”

Since 2017, Gianforte has presented the award to 33 Montana veterans. Nominations for the commendation come from the community. Nominees must reside in Montana and have served honorably in uniform as well as in their community. The deadline to nominate a veteran for the 2019 commendation is November 1.
