GREAT FALLS -

Senator John Walsh was in great falls today for the annual service Academy Day at the Montana Air National Guard.

"Well this is a wonderful opportunity for Montana's high school student to come and learn more about the Military Academies, talk to people who work at the academies, who have attended the academies and find out a little bit more about it. This is a very competitive process and we want to make sure that they know everything about it and what they are getting themselves into," says Senator John Walsh.

Will Early came down from Conrad with a desire to serve his country.

"Well I would really like to attend one of the Military Academies and I would really like to serve my country," says Early.

Early says he is interested in learning more about flying something he has wanted to do for some time now.

"Fly any type of aircraft and help my country by flying an aircraft," says Early.

This year's Academy Day attendance was a little low, Early's message to his fellow high school students is to not be afraid to take the opportunity.

"I think that they should not be intimidated by this Academy day and it's a great opportunity for everyone," says Early.

While today's numbers are low, the state of Montana is one of the highest in the category of service in the military.

"Well Montana , we have the 2nd highest per capita of veterans living here in our state. Over 100,000 veterans living here. So Montanan's love to serve, so this really means a lot that we still have young men and women who want to continue to contribute, continue to serve our Nation," says Senator Walsh.
