Gianforte Seeks Nominations for Montana Congressional Veteran Commendation
WASHINGTON – Montana Congressman Greg Gianforte seeks nominations for the Montana Congressional Veteran Commendation, a tribute to recognize outstanding Montana veterans who have honorably served both our nation and our communities.
“Montana veterans and their families have sacrificed so much in defense of our freedoms and liberties. After serving our country, many dedicate their time to our communities, and they deserve to be recognized for their service,” Gianforte said.
Gianforte launched the Montana Congressional Veteran Commendation in 2017, and presented the award to 14 Montana veterans.
Nominations for the commendation come from the community. To be considered, nominees must reside in Montana and have served honorably in uniform as well as in their community.
“I ask Montanans for their help in identifying and nominating outstanding veterans so we can honor them,” Gianforte said.
The deadline to nominate a veteran for the 2018 commendation is September 3. Recipients will be announced later that month.
