The Montana veterans memorial may not yet be an official state memorial, but it has been very busy just like a state memorial should be.

"Visits from the boys and girls club 2 different times. and now we have from the Pondera Center in Conrad the senior people come down and visit and see the memorial. and their delighted to see why we got here," says Mayor Michael Winters.

One of the visitors was Ron Bokma who severed his country in the Navy as a deep sea diver during his younger day.

"I was a diver in the service, it was a wonderful experience. I was on a ship for 31 months, on the deep see diving crew From the Philippines, Guam and just to have that education is a treasure to me," says Bokma.

When I asked Bokma what he thought of the memorial, he had a very simple answer.

"I kind of like it," says Bokma.

But folks down here at the memorial are hoping that one day especially during the next legislative session that this memorial will become a state memorial,
