Helena veteran John Quintrell was awarded the Purple Heart and Bronze Star for his service in Vietnam. He'll be signing copies of his book in Billings on Wednesday (7/7) at Adaptive Performance Center, 1420 Broadwater Ave.
Those who answered the call to serve obviously felt a calling to serve our country. But I also think those same veterans want to make sure that those patriotic values are instilled in the next generation.
As luck would have it, I was able to catch up with him while he stopped in Jackson Hole, Wyoming- just before he ventured into Yellowstone National Park. Earlier that same week he climbed Devil's Tower- even though he has never rock climbed before.
I was able to tag along with Montana's Congressman Matt Rosendale (R-MT) for a great visit to Horses Spirits Healing just north of Billings. Horses Spirits Healing is a great organization serving veterans, first responders, and their families with therapeutic programs featuring horses.
Bottom line up front: If you're in the Billings area, and you have something you want to talk about, and if you want to join us on the radio- come on down THIS FRIDAY to J & L Industries on the Billings West End.
