The American Legion is recognizing a Montana soldier for her dedication to outstanding community volunteer service.

Each year the Legion recognizes one member of each branch of the Armed Services.   Representing the entire US Army is Sergeant Chelsey Billing, a native of Broadus, Montana.

For the past two years, she has volunteered with the World War II Honor Flight program, a group that provides the opportunity for WWII veterans to visit Washington, D.C. and see the memorial that honors their service.

As a volunteer, she handles everything from flight logistics to assisting and escorting disabled veterans once they arrive.
