Page 2 of 2U.S. Senator Jon Tester and U.S. Congressman Denny Rehberg have both pledged their support to this noble endeavor. Tester comments, “I believe that we all share a responsibility to care for the men and women who have put their lives on the line to serve our Nation, and we have a moral duty to ensure that the families of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice are cared for.
I am pleased to offer my support to the work of Grateful Nation Montana in the hopes that their work will successfully provide for the post-secondary education of these children.”
Rehberg also adds,” This innovative scholarship program has opened the door of higher education for many of Montana’s finest young people. Grateful Nation Montana will only continue to grow and prosper.
I am pleased to offer my support to Grateful Nation and the youth of Montana.”
On March 31, NBC aired a piece on Grateful Nation Montana in their Nightly News segment entitled, “Making a Difference”, with Brian Williams. Since airing, GNM has been flooded with calls from individuals from all over the U.S. Many concerned citizens have asked how they can model a similar program after Grateful Nation Montana in their own state.
Thanks to GNM, children with parents who have died fighting for the American Dream are able to realize it.
All donations may be made directly to Grateful Nation Montana c/o the University of Montana Foundation and 100 percent goes to fund the outreach/ mentoring and post-secondary education costs at any one of the post-secondary schools comprising the University of Montana System for the families who have lost a parent in either the Iraq or Afghanistan Wars.
