It’s been two years since the attack on the U.S. Capitol. Officers who were present will be recognized with the highest honor; they will be given Congressional Gold Medals for their bravery during the attack on January 6th.
Traumatizing and terrorizing the dozens of officers who defended and fought the mob of Trump supporters that forced their way into the Capitol will be awarded on January 6th.
Four of those officers testified, describing their near-death experience. Two officers died by suicide days following the riot.
According to NBC ,”the medals will be placed in four locations at U.S. Capitol Police headquarters, the Metropolitan Police Department, the Capitol, and the Smithsonian Institution.”
Biden signed that bill last year to honor these officers, saying, “officers’ heroism cannot be forgotten.”
“It was a violent attempt to overturn the will of the American people, to seek power at all costs, to replace the ballot with brute force. To destroy, not to build. Without democracy, nothing is possible. With it, everything is,” President Biden recalls.
