Armstrong captures Rough Rider Award

The Dakota Defense Alliance recently honored Sen. Kelly Armstrong, R-Dickinson, with its Rough Rider Award, which recognizes people for their leadership and commitment to helping small business and supporting the military.

Armstrong has been a key supporter of the Solider for Life program, which helps veterans secure private sector jobs, said Kristin Hedger of the DDA. A nonprofit organization that helps private companies do business with the Pentagon and market themselves nationally, the DDA has handed out its Rough Rider Award since 2008.

A Dickinson attorney, Armstrong represents District 36, which encompasses parts of southwestern North Dakota counties Stark, Dunn, Morton and Hettinger.
