Elder Nelson honored with Minuteman Award by Utah National Guard

Decorated war veterans and members of the Utah National Guard filled a ballroom at the Little America Hotel on Wednesday evening to honor Elder Russell M. Nelson of the Quorum of the Twelve and seven other Utahns with the Bronze Minuteman Award — an award granted to military members and civilians for their service to the state and their communities.

"You are an example of people finding ways to serve," Utah Governor Gary R. Herbert said. "In the throes of adversity we see the character of the people. We've got challenging times; we've had some challenging times. It is not just the fires going on today ... it's been amazing to see the character of the people in these times of adversity as they've stepped forward."
