McDonnell Receives Veteran Award
Attorney General Robert F. McDonnell, a veteran and Republican nominee for governor, received the "Seven Seals Award" for his support of employers serving in the Guard and Reserve.
Seveal dozen people were on hand in the lobby of the Attorney General's Office when Roger Trout, chairman of the Virginia committee of the employer support of the
Guard and Reserve, presented the award. Some were military officials, including attorneys in McDonnell's office currently serving in the Guard and Reserve.
"Today, we are honoring Bob McDonnell, not for his military service, for which we owe him a great deal of gratitude, but for his exceptional support of fellow Reserve and Guard members as an employer,'' Trout said. "Bob McDonnell has gone above and beyond in supporting the employees in his office who are also citizen soldiers; but his support is not just for those service members in his office."
The presentation took place in front of the Wall of Honor honoring those who have been killed in the "war on terrorism."
