Montana III

A young man visited a veteran's memorial in another part of Montana and wanted his uncle to purchase a brick to commemorate the uncle's service to his country. The uncle said, "Why don't you build a memorial in Dillon?"

That is exactly what the young man did. He talked to folks in his hometown of Dillon, Mt. and was overwhelmed by the response. goods and materials were donated and the project was underway.

A stonemason and builder by trade, the young man began work and over time this beautiful memorial evolved from a dream to a reality.

It is dedicated to all veterans, but as you can see there are many from Vietnam remembered and honored here. Located along the I-15 Business Route, it is the pride of the town and well worth the time to stop and visit.
