On December 17, 2021, all of the recipients of the Pensacola Police Department’s Gold Medal of Valor came together for photos. The Gold Medal of Valor is the highest award that can be presented by the department for heroism beyond the call of duty. These eleven officers – some active and some retired – were again recognized for the risk they took to save a life. Their courage is reflected in the eyes of the people who are alive today because of them. They are: Henry Cassady–1985, Randy Stull–1987, Bruce Camacho-1991, Mike Wood-1999, Sheriff Chip Simmons-2000, Mike McVicker-2000, Greg Sievers-2000, Tonya Humphries-2000, James Hendry-2000, Greg Gordon-2010, Anthony Giorgio-2020. The accounts are included in my latest book, “Stories of Pensacola’s Finest” available on Amazon.
Well done, officers. Well done.
