2019: New Things Happening in North Idaho with M43

Now that we're a few weeks deep, we hope that 2019 is off and running well! We've received a lot of input these past few years about ramping up programming in the greater north Idaho area. You spoke, we listened, and this year we're taking action to address that.

Next week we're kicking off our first round of 43INC Happy Hour events throughout the northern portion of the state. The Idaho leadership from 43INC, Hire Heroes USA, and Team Rubicon will be on the road to visit with members at events in Lewiston, Moscow, and Post Falls. You can stay up to date on everything going on through our events page. Click here!

We have also brought on a new member to the M43 team, Stephen Tamm. Stephen is the M43 North Idaho Regional Coordinator and will be based out of Moscow. His task is to stick to the fundamentals that strengthen our statewide and local military communities: Innovate + Network + Connect. Don’t hesitate to reach out and make an introduction at stephen.tamm@mission43.org.

Our goal is to bring more opportunity right to your backyard and make sure Idaho remains the greatest place to find opportunity, expand your education, strengthen your community, and, most of all, enjoy life after the military.

Your challenge is to provide input and hold us accountable. Speak up and let us know where we can further involvement. Get out to events or invite us to your own, expand your network, put your ideas into motion, be the community leader that your neighbors expect and respect… and have a great time doing so.

See you soon!

In partnership between Lewis-Clark State College and the University of Idaho, Mission43 helped honor the fallen of 9.11.2001 and their families by moving the Flag of Honor, bearing the names of everyone lost that day, on foot from Lewiston to Moscow, Idaho. 

The event began with a brief ceremony at Hells Gate State Park at 8:46am, the time American Airlines Flight 11 crashed into the North Tower of the World Trade Center. The flags were then carried to Moscow over the course of the day and concluded with a memorial BBQ for the community.

Participants walked, rucked, or ran as individuals, families, or teams to complete as many miles as possible through the foothills of Eagle Bike Park. Those who completed at least one lap earned this year's 9.11 Moving Tribute Patch.
