Malmstrom AFB celebrates Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Posted: Jan 12, 2018 4:09 PM Updated:

Malmstrom Air Force Base kicked off the weekend on Friday with a Martin Luther King Jr. Day celebration.

During the ceremony, there were several performances from the Great Falls Community Gospel Choir, 14th Street Quartet, and even a skit from the "MLK Drama Team."

Lieutenant Colonel (Chaplain) Arthur McCaffrey said the event is about celebrating, and to bring love and forgiveness to the places that need it most just like Dr. King did.

"We are committed to the First Amendment rights of all people, and it’s time to live what Dr. King spoke about. He knew it was time for America to be a place of justice, a place where people are loving toward one another. It’s the freedom of all. And he lived for that, he fought for it, he taught it. And he saw it. There’s no reason why America can’t be that America that has been Constitutionally guaranteed,” McCaffrey said.
