VFW honors Sheriff Heaton

Wednesday, June 28, 2006

Veterans of Foreign Wars National Committee Chairman John Conrad presented the group's 2006 Law Enforcement Gold Medal Award for the State of Indiana to Clay County Sheriff Mike Heaton at a Saturday evening ceremony at the Indianapolis Adams Mark Airport Hotel.

Heaton was recognized for his dedication to the field of law enforcement and appreciation for creating community goodwill, according to Butch Marion, Commander of VFW Post 6606.

"We're not a political group, and this isn't a political endorsement by our group. When it comes to election time, our members vote how they want to," he said. "We're just honoring Mike for the terrific job he's done for our community."
