96th Annual Marine Corps National Convention in Billings

BILLINGS, Mont. — This is the 96th year that the Marine Corps League is hosting their annual national convention, but for many veterans, this is their first time in the Magic City.

Tom Lowry is a Marine Corps veteran himself and plays a key role in organizing the convention.  “Coming in they wanted a western atmosphere to find out what the west is really like, so tonight we’re going to take them out to ZooMontana, show them a buffalo and a bear, and some of the rocky mountain animals,” says Lowry.
