In advance of Veterans Day, two veterans groups were honored on Thursday at FSU for their exceptional work with returning servicemen and those abroad. Leon County Commissioner Jane Sauls presented them with an award.

The honors went to the Collegiate Veterans Association, a group that helps servicemen transition into student-civilian life, and the Thank a Soldier Organization, a group that sends care-packages to troops abroad. President of the Thank a Soldier Organization, Signè Thomas, said the reason for the group’s existence is simple.
