Billings Army Navy supports a very special venture in Maasai Mara, East Africa. The Anne K. Taylor Fund (AKTF) is a non-profit, charitable organization begun more than 15 years ago by Anne Taylor. During four decades working in the safari business, Anne saw growing pressures on wildlife including rampant illegal poaching activity along with escalating predator–livestock conflicts around the Mara reserve.

Early heartbreaking experiences were the seeds that became the nonprofit foundation AKTF is today. Around 1999, Anne was doing informal anti-poaching patrols. She found several elephants, a lion, and a giraffe badly entangled in life-threatening wire snares. These were deeply embedded into the animals’ limbs and elephants’ trunks, causing unfathomable pain and damage. Remarkably, once the wire snares were removed and the wounds treated, the animals made full recoveries.

Festooned with colorful flags from port to stern, Sharla Tester smashed a bottle of bubbly wine across the bow of the newest addition to the U.S. Navy Fleet, the USS Billings. The ship’s sponsor proclaimed, “For the United States of America, I christen thee Billings. May God bless this ship and all who sail in her.” Her husband, U.S. Senator Jon Tester (D-Montana), named the ship in honor of the patriotic and hardworking citizens of Billings, Montana.

Amidst hundreds of cheers and whistles, the Freedom-class LCS 15 (a littoral combat ship (LCS) built by Marinette Marine for Lockheed Martin) was launched into the waters of the Menominee River in Wisconsin. It marked a major milestone in the journey of the USS Billings to join the U.S. Navy Fleet.

Battle Dress Uniforms (BDUs for short) have been issued to military personnel for decades to camouflage them from the enemy. BDUs are available in various camo patterns to blend into jungle, woodland, desert, snow, and even urban environments.

Who knew that camo would someday become popular with Hollywood celebrities and fashionistas? There are Pinterest boards dedicated to how to wear it properly but most of it isn’t genuine military issue. What the heck is pink camo for anyway — hiding in a flock of flamingos? Get real!

No one needs to be going into battle to wear BDUs — any active sport like hunting, 4-wheeling, or paintballing will do. But kids? They’re always active! They run. They jump. They play. All day long!

Meet our newest greeter at Billings Army Navy Surplus, Sadie. She is a 6-year-old chocolate Labrador adopted by owners, Eddie and Robin Schmidt, from the Yellowstone Valley Animal Shelter in Billings, Montana.

She is being mentored by Buddy, Mitch’s 12-year-old Australian Shepherd. Buddy has a huge fan base of people all over the world who pop in to see him. (Yah, him instead of us — go figure!) So we are certain that he will be introducing Sadie to all his friends and she will soon be winning everyone’s hearts just like she did ours.
