BOZEMAN – Congressman Greg Gianforte honored two veterans at the American Legion in Bozeman on Friday.

Air Force Veteran Len Albright and Marine Veteran Harry Armstrong both received a Congressional award for their military service and their support to the local veteran community.

Armstrong was honored by the award and reflected on his experiences as a Marine.

“The Marine Corps is the basis for my life. I was raised here on a ranch, went to college, did a little traveling, went into the Marine Corps, and they taught me the discipline and the rules that work for life.” Armstrong said.

Albright who was also honored was a four year veteran of the US Air Force and served in the 55th Weather Reconnaissance Squadron in the Vietnam War.
