Yes! Attending Reunion

Could not afford to attend college after high school so I joined the Army and was lucky enough to become a lieutenant and serve as an Infantry Platoon Leader in Viet Nam from November 1969 to November 1970. After the military I attended U of Montana and received a BA in 1975, a Masters Degree in Public Administration in 1977 and a law degree in 1984. I served for 22 years in the Montana Senate and was a deputy county attorney in Missoula and had a private law practice for many years. I'm currently the Director of Corporate and Government Relations for the Washington Companies and the Executive Director of the Dennis and Phyllis Washington Foundation based in Missoula. Married to Leslie for 32 years. Three sons.

School Story

During my senior year, got caught with another unnamed classmate carrying a half-full keg of beer down the hallway at Billings West. Ended up in Principal Wallace's office. He raised his voice at us and, thankfully, told us to take the keg back to one of our cars and all would be forgiven. That wouldn't happen today.

Jim, Mike Halligan here. Glad you're well and sorry to see that your living in North Dakota. I was born in Jamestown but at the age of 1, convinced my parents to move to Billings. Quite precocious I was. I joined the Army out of HS and was an Infantry Combat Platoon Leader with the 101st Airborne Division in 1969-70. Been in Missoula ever since as a lawyer and still working for the billionaire Dennis Washington running his Foundation. Three sons and my wife is a district judge in Missoula. If you happen to get this direction, please call. Cell: 406-370-6551,
