Governor Bullock to Recognize Big Sky Honor Flight as Volunteer of the Game at Brawl of the Wild

Who: Governor Steve Bullock

The Big Sky Honor Flight recognizes American veterans for their sacrifices and achievements by flying them to Washington D.C. to see their memorials at no cost. Top priority is given to World War II and terminally ill veterans from all wars.

“While we can never fully repay Montana’s veterans for their service and sacrifice to our state and nation, the Big Sky Honor Flight is a great way that we can say ‘thanks’ to the men and women who have worn our nation’s uniform,” Bullock said. “It is an honor to recognize the Big Sky Honor Flight for all they do to support Montana’s veterans.”

To date, the Big Sky Honor Flight has made seven trips to Washington D.C. Approximately 600 Montana veterans have participated in the honor flight, visiting our nation’s capital to view the memorials and pay their respects to their fellow soldiers and America’s fallen heroes.
