Montana Military Housing
Montana is the fourth biggest U.S. state by region, behind Alaska, Texas and California, but with an average of only six people per square mile, it's one of the nation's least densely populated states. Even though the name Montana comes from the Spanish montana ("mountain" or "mountainous region"), it's an average altitude of just 3,400 feet, the lowest among the Rocky Mountain states.
Montana got its statehood on November 8, 1889 and Helena is the capital.
Montana is home to the Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument, which memorializes the historical 1876 battle between the Sioux tribe and U.S. Army, frequently referred to as "Custer's Last Stand".
Yellowstone National Park, situated in northern Wyoming and southern Montana, was the first national park created in America.
