BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Brevard County Sheriff Deputy Paul Phillips was presented with the Medal of Honor Award on Wednesday from members of the Florida Blue Knights Chapter XII along with neighboring Chapters and members of the Harley Owners Group.
Approximately a year ago, Deputy Phillips was severely wounded by gunfire when responding to a neighborhood disturbance call.
Deputy Phillips was able to neutralize the threat after being shot three times himself.
After months of rehabilitation Deputy Phillips was able to return to full active duty as a member of the Brevard County Sheriffs Office.
The Blue Knights honored Paul today with their “Medal of Honor” for his heroic actions that night that without questioned saved the lives of neighbors and other responding Deputies.
“Please join me in thanking all the members of the Florida Blue Knights Chapter XII along with neighboring Chapters in the Harley Owners Group for doing their part in recognizing a true hero,” said Sheriff Wayne Ivey.
