Important Information to Read

Medal of Valor Awards Ceremony

October 7, 2017 | Air Force One Pavilion at the Reagan Library

The Medal of Valor is awarded to officers for extraordinary bravery, above and beyond the call of duty, where risk of life actually existed and the officer was aware of such risk; where failure to take such action would not justify censure. Honorees and guests will enjoy a catered dinner and a tour of the library.

For tickets contact Randy Watkins at (805) 794-1570, Shawn Holzberger at (805) 279-0490, or Jeremy Paris at (805) 797-7105.
