Warm Reception for the 8th Big Sky Honor Flight Veterans

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS - On Monday night, emotions flooded the airport as veterans were greeted by smiles, tears, and countless offerings of thanks.

One 93 year-old veteran, Mike Naglich, was greeted by his family and lifelong friends. Bob Pulley is one of those friends, and he has known Naglich for more than thirty years.

Pulley said he really wanted to let Naglich know how much he was appreciated. He also said we need to let our future generations know just how important these veterans were to our country and the world in which we live.

"It's phenomenal, it's phenomenal to let these guys know how much we appreciate it, 'cause I don't think a lot of people realize how important that war was, and what they did for this country, for the world. So, we're really proud of these guys," said Pulley.

Naglich's wife, with tears in her eyes, said the warm reception for the veterans was incredible.
