Vice President Dick Cheney awards Deputy Jennifer Fulford, of Florida's Orange County Sheriff's Office, the Public Safety Officer Medal of Valor Award Thursday, July 14, 2005, during a ceremony in the Dwight D. Eisenhower Executive Office Building. Deputy Fulford responded to a burglary in progress call May 5, 2004, after an 8-year-old boy called 911 so say that "strange men" were in his home with weapons and that he and his sister were hiding inside a van in the garage. Deputy Fulford entered the garage to check on the children, and two men emerged from the house firing their weapons. Deputy Fulford, trapped in the garage, returned fire. She was struck a total of ten times, including in her shooting hand. She was still able to retrieve her weapon with her other hand and continue firing until both gunmen went to the ground. The children were kept safe and unharmed throughout the incident. White House photo by David Bohrer
