War Correspondent in Billings

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. -

An Emmy award winning correspondent from ABC News is in Billings as a guest speaker for the Big Sky Honor Flight fundraising banquet.

Mike Boettcher has covered nearly every terrorist attack, revolution, and war over the last 30 years, and now works as a  war correspondent for ABC World News.

"I would rather be in the audience listening to them than me talking to them. But, I'm here doing the speech so I want to take them on my journey and how they affected the path I took in life," said Boettcher.

You too can attend the fundraising banquet this Friday night for the Big Sky Honor Flight. "A Night to Salute Service and Sacrifice" will be at the Northern Hotel starting at 5:45 PM. Single tickets can be purchased for $100, prior to that night, and $125 night of the event.
