Gold Medal of Valor

I’m looking forward to tomorrow – gonna see some heroes…
The Pensacola Police Department has an awards system that allows them to recognize officers who have gone beyond their regular duties. The top award is called the “Gold Medal of Valor,” and has only been presented to eleven officers since the award system was established around 1978.

Tomorrow morning, December 17, 2021, all of the Gold Medal of Valor recipients (they are all still alive) will gather at the Pensacola Police station for photographs at 9:30 AM. The occasion is the 78th birthday of the oldest recipient, Henry Cassady.

Some might even show up earlier – at 8:00 AM for “Coffee with a Cop” at the Dog House, 30 S. Palafox St.
