The Indiana American Legion honored State Sen. Sue Glick (R-LaGrange) with the Distinguished Public Service Award at the organization’s 2013 Department Convention in Indianapolis on Saturday, July 13. This is the second consecutive year Glick has received this recognition.
Indiana American Legion Department Commander Richard Jewell said the award honors Glick’s continued efforts to author and sponsor legislation that supports Hoosier veterans.
"Senator Glick has proven invaluable to the efforts of the American Legion in its legislative efforts on behalf of Indiana's veterans,” Jewell said.
Jewell specifically mentioned Glick’s work in authoring legislation to create the “combat to college” program. This requires state colleges and universities with at least 200 veteran students to establish specified academic and administrative guidance to help these students.
Glick thanked the Legion for its continued support and efforts in helping Hoosier veterans.
“The Indiana American Legion does so much for our veterans and service members,” Glick stated. “The support of the Legion was an integral part in the success of many initiatives passed this session to benefit our men and women in the armed forces.”
The Distinguished Public Service Award is awarded to selected members of the Indiana General Assembly for their advocacy and dedication to the needs of veterans and service members.
