those of us who are lucky enough to work shoulder to shoulder with volunteers, get to see the real spirit of america in action every day. this is a big thanks to all the organizations and individuals which make it happen every day here in missoula:

thank you to every one for making the promise of america real to those who walk the talk of what it means to be a real american. you don’t need a pistol strapped to your belt to prove anything when you hold out your hand to those in need.

contact these folks if you would like to share in the glow that comes with serving the true spirit of america:
