Robert “Bob” Dole was a decorated World War II platoon leader who received two Purple Hearts and a Bronze Star serving with the renowned 10th Mountain Division.
He is an admirable uniter and leader of our country and has led a life of public service, most notably as a US Senator. He is a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom and the Congressional Gold Medal.
As National Chairman of the World War II Memorial Campaign, he was essential to the creation of the National World War II Memorial in Washington, DC. He is a loyal and leading advocate for the Memorial and for the Veterans it commemorates. He is a member of the Friends of the National World War II Memorial Honorary Committee.
In his own words:
"As World War II raged across Europe and Asia, my fellow soldiers and I crossed oceans to fight for freedom and liberty. The years at war treated each of us differently, but we all bear the scars of battle and loss. Our time there taught us lessons in humanity, pain, tolerance and our own resilience. We returned to a changed America and worked together to build our country into a prosperous nation."
We are tremendously honored by our association with Mr. Dole and we greatly appreciate all he does for the Greatest Generation and generations still to come.
