Lynchburg Veteran & Activist Wins National Award

Lynchburg, VA - An activist for veterans from Lynchburg is receiving a national award.

Every Friday, Steve Bozeman stands with his fellow veterans at Monument Terrace in Lynchburg showing support for our troops.

The national organization "Wreaths Across America" is honoring Bozeman with their Remember, Honor, Teach Award.

A local veteran and friend nominated Bozeman.

For him, the award's for all the men and women at Monument Terrace.

"I represent all these veterans. This is not just for me. I'm just here to take the point sometime. And get these rewards, it's for all these guys down here," said Bozeman.

Unfortunately, Bozeman can't make the award ceremony in Maryland Friday because he's overcoming a foot injury.
