“Working with, and getting to know your crewmembers was very much like the camaraderie that I grew to appreciate in the Marine Corps. I would encourage to all my fellow veterans, to rise up and try something different by spending a summer with Montana Conservation Corps. I now realize how much of a life changing experience it really was for me.” - Chance R. 2011 VGC Crew Leader
