Indianapolis – The American Legion, Department of Indiana recognized our Hoosier legislators with the Distinguished Public Service Award for their support of Indiana veterans at the 98th Annual State Convention, Saturday, July 9, in Indianapolis.
Since their inception, these awards have become among the most highly prized Legion honors. The following state legislators went above and beyond to work with The American Legion to improve the quality of life for veterans in Indiana.
The combined efforts of The American Legion, Hoosier veterans and their families saw great progress in veteran specific legislation during the 2016 Indiana General Assembly legislative session. We are privileged to honor our local legislators for their efforts and very proud of the work they have done and continue to do for Hoosier veterans.
The American Legion, Department of Indiana, State Commander Larry Lowry said, “We’ve made great strides this year for our Hoosier veterans. Our success was largely due to the cooperation between our state’s four largest veterans’ service organizations, the Legion, the VFW, DAV and AMVETS, respectively. Our four organizations have partnered this past year to align priorities and focus efforts to improve the quality of life for veterans in Indiana.”
“But, our work is never done. Our combined efforts, and the willingness by our state legislature to work to impact our veterans set a precedent for next year. Let’s continue to build and strengthen our great relationships between the veterans’ service organizations and the state legislature, and let’s continue to change lives for our Hoosier veterans.”
