Supporting our troops & Veterans

Montana Supporting Soldiers (MSS) was organized in 2003 in Helena, Montana as a troop support organization. The main focus is deployed troops who are not receiving letters, cards or care packages. We take care of Airmen, Soldiers, Marines and Sailors deployed from all across the United States.

     We also proudly support our wounded warriors, veterans and their families.
