Don't let terrorists intimidate us to abandon our values

Wrap-around services to reintegrate heroes to civilian life
This morning, I went to the airport and welcomed home 45 soldiers from the Montana National Guard who had just spent a year in Afghanistan. I told them I would ensure that we live up to the promise all of us made the day they signed up.
That's why I asked this Legislature to invest in our university system and make certain that we are providing the services and the space to meet veterans' needs--
the wrap-around services that will reintegrate these heroes back into civilian life and on our college campuses. When I got back from the airport, I found out that, while
I was gone, a legislative committee cut the funding for these critical services for returning vets. I urge you to restore these funds, live up to the promises we've made and welcome these warriors home with more than just words.
