In the week ahead of Memorial Day, honoring those who died while serving in our armed forces, more Montanans saw and heard about their future namesake warship whose sailors will carry on our nation’s proud tradition of citizen military service.The USS Montana Committee’s most recent update presentations leading up to Memorial Day were in Sidney, Miles City, Lewistown, Colstrip, and Billings.

As with all such events, there were many questions from audience members, and many were from veterans who are keenly interested in how defense technology has changed since their service.
