CHP-Governor's Medal of Valor

Unread postby Kedyw » Thu Mar 22, 2007 7:17 pm

Bravery, courage and gallantry - these qualities enable a person to remain steadfast in the face of danger or adversity. These characteristics typify this year's Highway Patrol recipients of the Governor's Medal of Valor awards. The highest honor bestowed upon a state employee, the Medal of Valor puts these men and women in a class by themselves. They have gone above and beyond the normal call of duty with no regard for their own personal safety to perform feats of courage, and that is how heroism is defined. They have put their own lives on the line in order to save, or help save, another life. No one could ask more of them, and no award ceremony, however distinguished, could ever be thanks enough.

The medal is worn around the neck, parallel lines of blue and gold representing the historitc colors of the California Highway Patrol. The medallion is gold, though I was unable to inspect what is written and illustrated upon it.
