Description

One page of a newsletter published by the organization of Disabled American Veterans (DAV) containing an article about an award given to Representative Louis Frey, Jr. (1934-), who served in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1969 to 1979. He was on several committees during his time in office, including the Select Committee on Narcotics Abuse and Control and the Science and Technology Committee. He was also the chairman of the Young Republicans of Florida.

This award was given for Congressman Frey's legislative efforts in the House of Representatives to advocate for veterans' issues. Some of these issues included World War I veterans' compensation, veterans' education benefits, and pensions. Additionally, Rep. Frey focused his efforts on advancing Central Florida's medical facilities for veterans by introducing several bills into Congress during the 1970s that would have called for the creation of a Veterans' Administration hospital in Brevard County.
