Thad Cochran and Jon Bon Jovi: different, but the same

Sen. Thad Cochran, R-Oxford, and rock musician Jon Bon Jovi may have different tastes and lifestyles, but they do have one thing in common: A dedication to public service. The Mississippi lawmaker and Bon Jovi were among public figures honored on Valentine’s Day Eve at the Friends of National Service Awards Reception in Washington, D.C.

Cochran received the Edward M. Kennedy Service Lifetime Leadership Award “for lifelong dedication to citizen service and for outstanding leadership in advancing national service as a civic commitment and legislative priority.”
