2021 Montana Governor's Veteran Commendation

No one better embodies our Montana values and commitment to service than veterans. Veterans are a part of the fabric of our state and communities.

Montana’s veterans and their families have made tremendous sacrifices in defense of our freedoms and our way of life. Even after their time in military service, many Montana veterans have kept the flame of service burning by helping others in their community.

The Montana Governor’s Veteran Commendation recognizes outstanding Montana veterans who have selflessly served our country in uniform and made a positive impact in their community.

From now until the end of the year, the governor is encouraging Montanans to nominate an exceptional veteran for the award.
