Today is National Armed Forces Day. It always falls on the 3rd Saturday in May.

Montana, as you well know, is one of the states with the most military whether it be active or veteran.

We have a lot to be thankful for with that. I don't have to tell you that it is because of our military that we have what we have today and continue to have.

Our freedoms, possessions, family and friends are all protected by the men and women that have risked their lives for us. So many have made the ultimate sacrifice for us.

Join me in paying tribute to our military on this National Armed Forces Day by using the hashtag #ArmedForcesDay when posting to social media. Let's let them know that we appreciate them and are thankful for their continued service to this country.
