WASHINGTON - The Gold Medal Ceremony honoring former Kansas Senator Bob Dole is scheduled for 2p.m.CDT Wednesday in the Rotunda of the U.S. Capitol in Washington.
Bob Dole was honored at the US Capitol today, and he sent the National Football League a message. But Kansas senator Pat Roberts says Dole's time on Capitol Hill has never been forgotten.
Numerous speakers focused on the work Dole did both as a senator and after for fellow military veterans and those with disabilities.
"I am extremely honored to accept this great honor", he said.
"The fact that we are here today is a testament to you personally, to your leadership in Congress, to your statesmanship and perseverance in bringing us the World War II memorial and to your heroism and sacrifice on the battlefield", said U.S. Sen.
Dole was a member of the House of Representatives from Kansas from 1961 until 1969 when he was elected to the Senate.
"Few Americans have demonstrated the kind of courage that Bob Dole has", said Rep. Steny Hoyer, D-Md., the second-ranking House Democrat.
Dole climbed the positions of the Republican Party turning into its administrator and in the end the Senate Republican pioneer.
President Donald Trump on Friday signed a bill awarding Dole the Congressional Gold Medal. "I thank you for presenting it to me".
Dole supported Trump for president.
Dole was the main previous Republican chosen one to help Trump's bid in the 2016 decision.
Since that campaign, he founded the Dole Institute of Politics at the University of Kansas. But Trump and the Republican-led Congress are now mired in a pitched budget battle that could end in a government shutdown at the end of the week if not resolved. "Thank you for your service".
Dole, 94, overlapped eight presidents during his 35 years in Congress. Other Congressional Gold Medal honorees include Senators Robert Kennedy, John Glenn and Harry Truman. Sway Dole is granted the Congressional Gold Medal, the most elevated regular citizen respect gave by Congress.
The Congressional Gold Medal is one of the nation's highest civilian awards and is bestowed by Congress as an expression of gratitude for distinguished achievements and contributions by individuals, groups, or institutions.
