The London Medal for Distinguished Service
Named in honor of Dr. Jennifer Burkhart London and Dr. J. Phillip London to recognize their personal and professional commitment to serving our community, our nation, and those in uniformed service. The Londons serve on numerous philanthropic, charitable, and educational boards, sponsor and establish special recognition programs, and raise essential funding for hundreds of organizations serving military, veteran, and local communities. Their tireless efforts directly improve the lives of service members, veterans, and their families.
The purpose of The London Medal is to recognize exemplary, distinguished service and continued support of wounded, ill and injured service members, their families, and those supporting their recovery. The Medal highlights a record of service and noteworthy achievement in advocating for the needs of those undergoing treatment and recovery. The award is presented to an individual, organization, or group making significant contributions to improving the quality of life and long-term outcomes for those who serve.
The Medal is presented at the Annual Veterans Day Benefit Gala, and the recipient is usually a featured speaker at the event.
