Ann-Margaret To Receive Disabled Veterans Business Alliance’s Patriotism Award
Entertainment icon Ann-Margret will be honored by the Disabled Veteran Business Alliance (DVBA) during its Salute to Veterans Day Breakfast at 8:30 a.m., Friday, Nov. 13 at the Beverly Hilton.
She will receive the DVBA’s Charles Durning Patriotism Award. A World War II U.S. Army veteran who participated in the Normandy Invasion, Durning became one of the best-known character actors in Hollywood and, like Ann-Margret, lent his star power to recognize and honor veterans.
Ann-Margret embarked on her first USO tour in 1960 to entertain troops over Christmas break with a few college classmates. Soon after her professional career took off, she received a petition signed by more than 3,000 troops stationed in Vietnam asking the her to travel overseas to perform for them in 1966.
She became known for stopping at dangerous checkpoints to meet and greet “all the troops.” In 2003, the USO honored her with its Spirit of Hope Award. In 2014, she was honored in New York by the Wounded Warriors.
The DVBA provides resources to, and works side-by-side disabled veterans to help them establish and sustainable businesses. Its mission is to help all service-disabled veterans who want to achieve financial rehabilitation through entrepreneurship and to support legislation promoting that goal.
