Medal of Honor Virtual Vigil
One Voice United would like to thank everyone that joined us on May 14, 2021 for the Virtual Vigil that we held to remember and honor corrections officers, supervisors, and other essential personnel from across the nation that we have lost due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
- The One Voice United Gold Medal of Honor has been awarded posthumously to every corrections officer that has died in the line of duty due to the COVID-19 pandemic. All fallen supervisors and other essential staff will also be recognized for their ultimate sacrifice with the One Voice United Supervisor Medal of Honor and One Voice United Essential Personnel Memorial Plaque, respectively. A list of the fallen that will be honored is available to view and download here.
- The One Voice United Silver Medal of Honor has been awarded to Sergeant Kelvin Glover of the Kirkland Correctional Facility in South Carolina.
- The One Voice United Bronze Medal of Honor has been awarded to Sergeant Dean Stump of the Columbus Correctional Institution in North Carolina.
- Congratulations to Sergeants Glover and Stump. They will receive their awards and be honored at the presentation of the 2021 awards in May of 2022.
