OSC Winter Adventures 

To the Editor,

Thanks to lots of snow and support from many folks and businesses in Red Lodge Operation Second Chance conducted another great Winter Adventure for Wounded Warriors from the Special Operations Command. We brought out three great couples for several days of skiing and snowmobiling.  Tom Kuntz, Peter Christ, John & Mary Kay Gilligan have been part of our team for six years and provided free lodging and meals.  Wally Zook and Allen Hill plus a couple of snowmobiles from Jake Lavalle provided a great day of snowmobiling.  Special treats were provided this year with goodies donated by Linda Vietz of  and massages and facials donated by Cara Barbee and Karla Ulledallen  Midnight trips to the airport were driven with a smile from Ben Yetter and Bonnie McKown ran folks all over Red Lodge.   Ski support and adaptive equipment was provided by a great team from Eagle Mount and with free passes, equipment for the Ladies and meals provided by Eliza Kuntz.   We knew that the friendly folks and businesses of Red Lodge had accomplished another miracle when each of the couples fell in love with our piece of paradise and asked to come back for a summer adventure.


Thanks to everyone
