"Newman also partakes in Big Sky Honor Flights, an organization whose mission is “to recognize Montana World War II Veterans for their sacrifices and achievements by flying them to Washington, D.C., to see their memorial at no cost.” Upon one flight’s return in 2013, he was a part of the celebrating crowd that welcomed the veterans back at the Billings Logan International Airport with loud cheering and waving of American flags. Newman said, “It’s an honor to be able to stand for them and give them the recognition they deserve.”"
