Service Award

by Chris Cato

A big honor has been given to an East Texas woman who has worked to give so many veterans their benefits. The Disabled American Veterans Association awarded Norma Butler with the Service Award for her commitment to veterans.

Butler worked with Congressmen Jim Turner and Charlie Wilson for nearly 23 years. She says it was almost hard to retire from her long service.

Butler said, "I really don't like leaving a lot of my cases that -- a lot of our cases that we haven't received closure on, but that's the way it'll always be."

Butler says there will always be a case to fight for, and she's happy she had the chance to work with so many veterans.
