Primeaux, during his service in Vietnam

First American Indian Earns Honor From Disabled American Veterans


Dr. Robert "Bob" Primeaux, member of the Standing Rock Sioux, is a Vietnam veteran who is dedicated to helping veterans across the country, particluarly in matters of health care. And he's being recognized for his efforts.

Disabled American Veterans has awarded Primeaux the 2013 Sonny Montgomery Helping Hands Award. The award is named after longtime Mississippi Congressman G.V. "Sonny" Montgomery, who served in World War II. Primeaux is the first American Indian to receive this honor, which is presented annually by DAV to a veteran who is making a real difference to help the lives of others.

"I congratulate you for the hard work and dedication to America's veterans and their continued health care," DAV Commander Jeffrey K. Carson told Primeaux.
