$25K and Counting for Wounded Navy SEAL

Posted: Updated:

MISSOULA - Events to raise funds for an injured Navy SEAL from Montana generated $25,000, and donations are still coming in.

Veteran Navy SEAL No Reichenbach lost both of his legs when he stepped on an improvised explosive device in Afghanistan last July.

Montanans got the chance to talk to Bo during a "Meet and Greet" at Black Cat Bakery in Missoula on Friday.

During Saturday's Griz football game, six Navy SEAL parachuted into Washington-Grizzly stadium, all to raise funds for the wounded warrior of Billings.

Randy Hayes, who is the founder and president of America's Fallen Heroes, said Montanans came together stronger than in people in larger cities.

"The parachute team said that when they were 3,000 feet above the stadium that they could actually hear the crown roaring and there was only 26,000 people in the stadium. Two nights before that, they jumped into an NFL stadium that had 70,000 plus people in the stadium, that small crowd of 26,000 was louder than the crowd of 70,000," Hayes applauded.

while a technical glitch prevented people from sending donations via instant text during the Griz game, Hayes said you can still donate to Bo's cause.
