For those of you who have served in military or law enforcement, you know the significance of the coin. That's why I was very excited to get my hands on the official USS Montana coin.

The crew of the US Navy submarine that will be named after our great state is in Big Sky Country as we speak. I joined the ship's captain, Commander Michael Delaney, and Petty Officer Evan Glenn, a Bozeman native, at a USS Montana welcome reception in Billings Thursday night.

Luckily for me, Petty Officer Glenn had some coins for sale. Hoping to score a coin for yourself? Maybe you can catch the crew on their other visits across the state. Click here for full details.
