Help make Military Appreciation Night better for all!
Each year there are many unclaimed Military tickets. This results in many donated tickets going unused, while other Service members are still on the waiting list. Please help us fix this problem! If you are unable to make arrangements to pick up your tickets on either of the two designated days, please be courteous: notify the Military ticket volunteers and ask to have your name removed from the ticket list. Due to past performance, you may be refused ticket reservations for this reason. If you have questions, please contact us atmilrodeotics@gmail.com. Due to the number of requests we receive, please do not call or text your requests.

We look forward to seeing you all there!!!

On behalf of the Montana JCF Symposium Planning Team, Brandy Keely, President of Montana JCF, is excited to announce the agenda and theme of this year's 5th Montana JCF Symposium. In collaboration with the Montana VA Health Care System, we will be focusing heavily on delivering a highly interactive and engaging transition simulation experience. This transition simulation is designed to put you in the shoes of a Service Member or Veteran that is transitioning out of the U.S. Armed Forces. You will be given a scenario in which you have to navigate resources and services in order to achieve the desired outcome. The objective here is to provide you with a first-hand experience and insight into the challenges Service Members and Veterans face during their transitional journey back into civilian life. In addition, we hope to be able to use the results of the simulation to identify potential gaps and ways to streamline and enhance access and delivery of services and resources. In addition to the Simulation, we will be hosting a couple of American Red Cross wellness modules and a networking mixer on the afternoon of Thursday, August 9th.

The Rocky Boy Veterans Center holds that “Veterans helping Veterans for a Better Future” is the basis for all action in serving and honoring Rocky Boy Veterans and Service Members.

The Rocky Boy Veterans Center is a one-stop-shop for Veterans seeking assistance ranging from VA enrollment and benefits to housing to business and employment assistance.

Our goals are to ensure Rocky Boy Veterans and Service Members receive the care and benefits they have earned through their service to this country and the Chippewa-Cree people; and to advance and develop the Rocky Boy Veteran community, ultimately furthering the advancement of the Chippewa-Cree people.

Join Xsports4vets 2018 Butte Events this summer! Xsports4vets provides extreme sporting activities to combat veterans as an outlet for stress and excess energies, to the veterans who served during the Global War On Terrorism, Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom eras. The events are free for the participants. We seek to provide safe coping mechanisms for stress. Another function of our events is to put the participants in contact with other veteran organizations they need to use to improve their quality of life; both during and after their military career.
