If you're someone who wants to experience the unity that America felt in the days and months following the 9-11 terror attacks, that was something that was clearly present in the room two years ago when a Montana-based veterans group held their first ever fundraising banquet in Billings.
The Warrior Taste Fest is a fantastic event that benefits the Warriors and Quiet Waters Foundation, which helps post 9/11 combat veterans and their families dealing with PTSD through fly fishing at no cost to them.
I've heard from a lot of our fellow veterans here in Montana and elsewhere across the country over the past few days. We're pissed off. We're disgusted. I'm with you. The last week, especially, pissed me off too.
Since Montana has some of the highest numbers of veterans per capita in the country, it is no surprise that a lot of you are reaching out and asking me what you can do to help our friends in Afghanistan.
I got a message from someone I greatly respect who has been a huge supporter of our troops here in Montana. He wanted to hear my thoughts on the news developing in Afghanistan. If you're an Afghan veteran, we want to hear yours as well.
