BOZEMAN - U.S. Senator Jon Tester was also in Bozeman on Friday to present a special honor.
Cory Klumb is an Iraq war veteran who never received all of the medals he earned.
An explosion in 2003 caused him to lose some of the hearing in his right ear. He sent a letter to Senator Tester explaining this-which led to him earning a Purple Heart.
Klumb said, "It's an honor. I wish the incident hadn't happened but it happened, it did and I was fortunate to be here and I'm proud to have the medal."
Senator Tester said, "It's important we recognize these folks who sacrifice so much for this country and a Purple Heart is a recognition of that sacrifice."
