McKinney Honored at Old Fort Days Rodeo


The Old Fort Days Rodeo kicked off on Monday, May 31. In honor of Memorial Day, the themed evening “National Patriot Night.”

During the ceremony, the announcers honored the men and women in uniform. Among those, VFW Post 6527 Commander Richard McKinney.

McKinney was presented a Montana Silversmiths belt buckle from the Old Fort Days Rodeo, “Honoring Those Who Served.” The United States Air Force Veteran gives a great deal of his time volunteering in service to other veterans.

We certainly cannot think of a more deserving veteran to receive this recognition!
