Legionnaire receives Presidential Citizens Medal

Mike Dorman, a member of North Carolina’s Fuquay-Varina Post 116, received the Presidential Citizens Medal at the White House on March 11. The award recognizes his work as founder and executive director of Military Missions in Action (MMIA), which helps veterans with physical and mental disabilities achieve independent living.

Since 2008, MMIA has completed more than 100 home-modification projects, including wheelchair ramps, roll-in showers, new roofs and other repairs.

“As long as there are men and women wearing the uniform of our country, there will be a need for our services,” Dorman said. “We’re just getting started.”
