and selflessness. By establishing this dedicated webpage, we aim to ensure that the
inspiring stories of our state's heroes are heard and celebrated for generations to come."

Rep. Charlie Miller expressed, “It was an honor to be a primary sponsor on this bill, and to
be able to help give first responders the recognition that they deserve. Throughout my
tenure, I have witnessed firsthand the dedication and unwavering commitment exhibited
by our state's first responders in the face of adversity. These brave men and women
embody the true spirit of heroism, often risking their own safety to safeguard the lives of
Sen. Norman Sanderson remarked, “The launch of the North Carolina Medal of Valor
webpage is a testament to the valor and sacrifice exemplified by individuals in our state. It
is crucial that we acknowledge and honor the courageous deeds of North Carolinians who
put their lives on the line to protect others.”
