Rock Legend Mark Farner To Receive Award At Vietnam Veterans of America ’s National Leadership Conference

( WASHINGTON , DC )–Mark Farner, the former lead vocalist, lead guitarist, and principle songwriter for the iconic rock band Grand Funk Railroad, will receive the President’s Award for Excellence in the Arts at VVA’s National Leadership Conference on Saturday, August 14, in Orlando , Florida . The honor will be presented at the conference’s final event, the Awards Banquet, at the Rosen Centre Hotel, the site of the Leadership Conference.

Best known for their mega-hits, including “I’m Your Captain (Closer to Home),” Grand Funk Railroad was one of rock music’s most successful groups, playing to enormous crowds and selling more than 30 million records from the late sixties to the early eighties. “We are honoring Mark Farner for his life’s artistic work and for his strong support of America ’s veterans,” said John Rowan , VVA’s National President. “That includes a memorable appearance at our 25th anniversary commemoration of the dedication of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington in 2008.”

The Leadership Conference brings together hundreds of Vietnam veteran advocates from around the nation who will take part in four days of seminars, meetings, and other activities. Opening Ceremonies will be held Wednesday, August 11.
