Also awarded this year was the first ever Medal of Valor Award to David Shelton (pictured to the right of the bottom photo) of Hot Springs Volunteer Fire Department.  Firefighter Shelton rescued someone from a burning structure prior to apparatus getting on scene back in April of this year.  His nominator and Fire Chief, Joshua Norton, said that he is “…blessed to have such dedicated firefighters…” as Shelton on his department and as members of their community.
