U.S. Army Honors 'Doonesbury' Cartoonist

By E&P Staff

Published: January 27, 2006 1:55 PM ET

NEW YORK "Doonesbury" creator Garry Trudeau has been presented with the U.S. Department of the Army's Commander's Award for Public Service, Universal Press Syndicate announced Friday.

The award -- the fourth highest honor the Army can give a civilian -- recognizes Trudeau's "outstanding contributions to the morale and support of wounded service members, veterans, their families, and the Walter Reed family of healthcare providers," wrote Major General Kenneth L. Farmer Jr. "Your compassionate portrayal of Lieutenant B.D.'s recovery and struggle to assimilate into this environment ... has touched our Warrior Family and opened the eyes of the rest of the world to the physical, emotional, and personal challenges our soldiers face."


Trudeau's B.D. character lost a leg in Iraq.

"Doonesbury" appears in more than 1,400 newspapers.
