Daines honors Montana hero
News from the office of Senator Daines
U.S. SENATE — On Jan. 25 Senator Daines paid tribute to a true Montana hero, Dr. Daniel Edelman. Senator Daines hosted Dr. Edelman in his office and delivered a speech on the Senate floor in his honor. Dr. Edelman is a veteran of the United States Army who was seriously injured on a mission while deployed overseas. In addition to his distinguished career serving the country in the Army, Dr. Edelman also served his fellow Montanans as Chancellor at Montana State University-Billings. Dr. Edelman recently retired from MSUB due to a terminal condition connected to his time in the United States Army.
“It’s an honor recognize Dr. Edelman for his service to our great state and nation,” Daines said. “He truly embodies the values and spirit of a Montanan, and I have no doubt that his legacy of service will continue for generations to come.”
Daines read his statement to the Congressional Record honoring Dr. Edelman on the floor of the United States Senate where he and his family were able to watch from the Senate Gallery.
