Carbon Country News: Sen. Tester congratulates Red Lodge on becoming Montana’s first Yellow Ribbon Community

Montana Senator Jon Tester said it was an “honor” to announce that Red Lodge was to become the first Yellow Ribbon Community in Montana when he spoke at the Elk’s Club, Friday night.

Red Lodge Mayor Brian Roat introduced Sen. Tester.

“It is truly an honor to be part of this event. We are making history here tonight. It is an honor to work with veterans here for the last four years. The Joe Papez Chapter of the Purple Heart do some credible work,” said Tester. “I had the honor to get to know Joe and I know he and his wife, Dorreen, are smiling down on us tonight because he always believed in looking after fellow veterans and active duty troops and their families for their entire life times. That is exactly what Yellow Ribbon Communities do. Red Lodge is a great fit to become the first ever Yellow Ribbon Community because the businesses here are proud to help the folks who serve us.”
