Veterans Affairs Gives Money to Local Organization

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

Veterans Day was this week, and the federal government is showing its support of our veterans. Montana Senators Max Baucus and John Tester announced Thursday that the Department of Veterans Affairs will give $22,000 to a local organization.

Volunteers of America Northern Rockies is devoted to serving vets in need in Montana and Wyoming. The Montana headquarters, here in Billings, will use the money to purchase a new van. "A lot of times guys have a medical appointment on short notice, or they have a job interview on short notice, and we'll just be able to accommodate them," said Billy Holder, Director of Veteran Services.

The new van will be the second for the Billings office. The organization says the new van will help them better serve our vets.
