Here is my best explanation:

'award' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'a soldier on a day of victory' is the wordplay.
'a soldier' becomes 'gi' (government issue or general issue**).
'on' means one lot of letters go next to another.
'a day of victory' becomes 've'.
'gi'+'ve'='GIVE'

'to' is the link.
