Obama gives Medal of Valor to 13 heroes who were ‘just doing their job’

This is a positive step by President Obama and the Administration. We commend President Obama for his supportive comments about the men and women of law enforcement.

During this National Police Week, we’d like to recognize the 13 police officers who received the Medal of Valor at the White House earlier today. Each of these individuals displayed extraordinary courage and selflessness in the line of duty.

“We can show our respect by listening to you, learning from you, giving you the resources that you need to do your jobs,” Obama said.
