Franks received several awards, including the Army Commendation Medal and Army Reserve Components Achievement Medal. He received a $500 grant from the Minnesotans' Military Appreciation Fund on June 21 at the Troop Appreciation Walk and 5K Run.

The nonprofit and nonpartisan Minnesotans' Military Appreciation Fund is a statewide fundraising initiative that shows our troops how much we appreciate and respect their efforts by providing cash grants to all soldiers deployed in combat zones such as Iraq and Afghanistan, and to the families of soldiers who are killed in combat.
