“There is no higher honor bestowed upon law enforcement by the State of Idaho than the Medal of Honor,” Attorney General Lawrence Wasden, chairman of the Medal of Honor Commission, said in a prepared statement.

Each of these three men performed courageously in the name of public safety. Their actions exemplify what it means to be an Idaho peace officer. I would like to commend Chief Deputy Barclay and Sgt. Kyle Moore for risking their personal safety while protecting the public in a very dangerous situation. Sgt. Greg Moore’s selection as a recipient also highlights his career of brave and dutiful public service and is something his family and friends can be very proud of.”
