Crapo meets with contractors, family members to issue Spirit of Idaho Award

A number of Idaho individuals, contractors and others stepped forward to volunteer their time to help the family of the late Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient Vernon Baker of St. Maries. Idaho Senator Mike Crapo has called the volunteers together to meet with Baker’s wife, Heidy, and local elected officials on Monday, and to present each of them with his Spirit of Idaho Award. Two ceremonies, one in St. Maries, Baker’s home for many years, and another in Post Falls, will be held to celebrate the efforts of the Idaho volunteers.
