    June 18, 2013 No comments

    Indiana Blue Star Military Families honored Secretary of State Connie Lawson with their 2013 Appreciation Award at the Indiana Blue Star Families Salute annual event on Saturday, June 15th. The organization recognized Secretary Lawson for her steadfast support of military family concerns shown through her legislative work and attention to the protection of those families’ rights and welfare.   

    “Military families are the strongest support network that our fighting men and women have. Recognizing and celebrating the sacrifice of our Hoosier soldiers and their families is the very least we can do,” said Secretary Lawson. “I am honored to accept the 2013 Appreciation Award and I am humbled to join past recipients like Senator Richard Lugar, Governor Mitch Daniels and General Martin Umbarger.” 

    Secretary Lawson was nominated for her continuous support of the event since its start in 2006. Secretary Lawson’s involvement has enhanced the event and helped the Indiana Blue Star Program develop its year-round mission of direct support to military families.  

    The Indiana Blue Star Military Family Appreciation Award recognizes individuals who demonstrate their dedication to the welfare of military families, whether incidental to their public service or private sector careers or as a product of their volunteer activities.  Nominees are designated by the Executive Board of the Indiana Blue Star Program, and ultimately selected by the entire volunteer committee of the Indiana Blue Star Salute event.  Secretary Lawson’s selection as the recipient of this year’s award was unanimous.  

    The Indiana Blue Star Salute was formed to honor and celebrate military families.
