“My military career truly got its start as an Army ROTC Cadet at Norwich University, The Military College of Vermont. There I learned many things including the importance of self-discipline, physical fitness, mental toughness, academic excellence and service to others before self… I knew that the Military Police Corps was the right fit for me as an officer as I knew that I was also going to be pursuing a career in civilian law enforcement.”

 

Established in 1904, The Carnegie Medal honors individuals who risk their personal safety to save the lives of others.
