As we honor Veteran’s Day, Montana looks back at all those who have served the nation and stood up for freedom. On Oct. 24th, 1917, the 163rd Montana Infantry Regiment paraded down Main Street in Helena as they prepared to deploy to Europe where World War One was raging. A year later, the war ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month We now honor all veterans on Nov. 11th.
