National Guard to Hold Freedom Salute

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. -

This weekend, the Montana Army National Guard is recognizing soldiers and their families who've returned from deployment.

More than 200 soldiers and their families from the 484th Military Police Company and the 260th Engineer Company. The soldiers were deployed for 12 months and returned home earlier this year.

This ceremony will be the final step in the reintegration process the Yellow Ribbon Program has for soldiers before they return to their units throughout Montana.

"We recognize those men and women that have volunteered and taken time out of their lives to defend the freedoms that we take for granted, sometimes on a daily basis," Montana Army National Guard Capt. John Bleile said. "And more importantly, it's just a recognition for them and their family members and it helps them realize that, you know, the Montana guard is behind them."

The ceremony is Sunday June 16th at the Billings Holiday Inn Grand Montana Hotel. It starts at 1:30 p.m.
