"I am honored by this award," Page said. " I thank the veterans not only for this award, but for their service to our country as well," he added.
The Missouri VFW also awarded the honor to Rep. David Day.
"This year two state representatives were invaluable in helping us advance our cause of improving veterans care," said Dewey Riehn, Legislative Chairman of the MO VFW. "Rep. Page was our leader in Jefferson City."
