Senator Bernie Sanders Receives Congressional Leadership Award from Disabled Vets

U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders was chosen to receive a Congressional Leadership Award from the Disabled American Veterans.
“Your personal efforts led to important increases in funding for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder treatment, Gulf War Illness research and adaptive housing grants for seriously disabled veterans,” said Larry Polzin, the DAV national commander. “When veterans have needed your support, you have always stood up for them.”
Sanders is the only senator and second member of Congress given the Congressional Leadership Award this year. The other is Rep. Ann Marie Buerkle (R-N.Y.)
