Veterans of Foreign Wars - (VFW)
OLE BECK VFW POST 209
An organization of American veterans who have taken part in a foreign military campaign or expedition of the United States.
Ole Beck VFW Post 209 was chartered in 1921. It was established to provide a means for Veterans to help their fellow Veterans in their time of need. We are a non-profit organization that is here to better the community and veterans within the community. The Post has an Honor Guard which provides a Firing Party and a bugler for ceremonies held at numerous Western Montana Cemeteries.
XSports4Vets is a group of current conflict veterans that strive to help other combat veterans succeed. They utilize as many extreme sports as we can to take the edge out of civilian life. Riverboarding, rock climbing, mountain biking, sky diving, rafting and many other activities are their expertise! Some of us have wounds left over from combat, others can't be seen - but we all benefit from getting out and meeting people that have been in our shoes.
