HYDE PARK, N.Y. -

A big honor for Sen. Patrick Leahy and his wife, Marcelle. They are set to receive the Eleanor Roosevelt Val-Kill Medal Award.

The award is handed out each year to those who demonstrate a commitment to public service.

The Leahys were chosen for their roles in advocating for affordable health care, childhood nutrition and cancer prevention.

They will receive their award next month along with a few other winners, including Gloria Steinem.
