Sons Of American Revolution Give Hinckley Award

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- LDS Church President Gordon B. Hinckley was awarded the Gold Good Citizenship Award by the National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution (NSSAR) on Friday. The award is given to about six recipients each year in recognition of service to the community.

The award was presented by NSSAR president Bruce Butler, who said that Hinckley was chosen because of his "notable service in behalf of American principles." In accepting the award, Hinckley said "All of us are proud to be Americans. I'm grateful for America; I'm grateful for the things for which she stands." But he also expressed some surprise at being given the award, "You must be running out of candidates," he joked.

In response, Butler said they hadn't run out of candidates and that it was an honor just to sit next to Hinckley, let alone give him an award. "I hoped some of humility would rub off on me," said Butler.
