Firestone Residents Presented with Awards for Father's Service
Firestone Police Chief David Montgomery had the honor to present awards and medals to Firestone residents on June 13, 2012, on behalf of the United States Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. The awards were presented to Savannah and Madison Mendenhall, daughters of Gardner and Nicole Mendenhall of Firestone.
As a symbol of gratitude, Rodham Clinton presented these girls with the awards. The awards read: “In appreciation for the sacrifice asked of you while separated from your father during his unaccompanied tour of duty, this Certificate and accompanying Medal of Recognition are offered as a symbol of the Department of State’s gratitude. Just as we are proud of the men and women serving in Unaccompanied Posts, we are also proud of their families. Thank you for sharing your father.”
