The Senate approved two bills Thursday recognizing Montana’s military men and women.
One bill dedicates every March 30th as ‘Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day’ to honor the men and women who served in the military during the Vietnam War.
The second measure is a resolution showing the Legislature’s support for Montana’s service members and their families.
The bill directs the Secretary of State to send copies of the resolution to the Montana Congressional Delegation and to all branches of the Armed Forces.
Senator Cliff Larsen (D-Missoula) said, “I encourage you, my fellow Senators, to keep in touch with the soldiers and their families, through this resolution and with them as your neighbors. It’s a simple way to say thank you to our military.”
Both measures received unanimous support from the Senate in their second-readings.
