Every year, Military Times recognizes five exemplary service members during an award ceremony on Capitol Hill. This year, Sen. Joni Ernst, along with many congressional, military and community leaders, came together to honor them.
Military Times honored the 2017 Service Members of the Year Wednesday evening in a ceremony held at the Reserve
Officers Association on Capitol Hill.
