Great Falls celebrates Veterans Day

Posted: Updated:

Community members and Malmstrom officials came together today to honor all veterans both active and retired through a remembrance ceremony.

"It's Veterans Day the 11th hour of the 11th day the 11th month when WW1 ended and that's the important thing and the other thing we are focusing on this is also to highlight our services American legion VFW, DAV and all the others that help our veterans and help the mission of the VA department of defense," says retired Lt. Colonel Rich Liebert.

Veterans Day means so much to not only the veterans of past wars but also our active duty military still serving our country today.

"Well it's important for the veterans to know that they're remembered and you think about some of the sacrifices these men and women have made that are unimaginable to most Americans, just having someone say thank you to them means the world," says Colonel Robert Stanley.

Due to the weather today's ceremony was held indoors with a clear view of the Montana Veterans Memorial, which honors all service men and women.

"You know we started that in 1999, we have over 6,000 names on there now. In July of this year coming up we're going to be having the Traveling Vietnam Wall here so I think its a great place to be and very proud to be apart of our memorial here," Explains Mayor Winters.
