Major Jeremy Kilburn, M.D.
United States Air Force

Dr. Jeremy Kilburn proved himself a true hero in July 2012 when he saved the life of California Highway Patrol Officer Tony Stanley. Major Kilburn, a critical care pulmonologist in the United States Air Force, was awaiting rescue after having broken his leg during a hike. When the rescue chopper arrived more than 50 yards from where Kilburn waited, he saw Officer Stanley go down after being struck in the head by one of the helicopter's rotor blades. Disregarding his own serious condition, Dr. Kilburn crawled the 50 yards on his broken leg to perform life-saving procedures on Stanley.

Dr. Kilburn's selflessness that day saved his rescuer's life and proved he was a true hero.

Officer Andrew Bauman
Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department

On October 20, 2010, Officer Andrew Bauman interposed himself between an assailant and their victim, engaging the assailant in a hand-to-hand struggle. The assailant repeatedly struck Bauman with a rock, inflicting severe damage to the officer's head. Despite these grievous injuries, Bauman contained the attacker until backup officers arrived to help subdue him.

Officer Bauman received a Meritorious Service award from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police department for his actions that day.

Officer Patrick Burke
Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department

On April 19, 2011, Officer Patrick Burke proved himself a hero by protecting his partner and the citizens of Las Vegas. While performing a stop of a suspicious vehicle, Officer Burke and his partner suddenly found themselves in a high-speed chase after the driver sped away. Relying on specialized training, the officers forced the car to a stop and Office Burke exited the car to apprehend the suspect. The suspect opened fire on Burke and his partner. Knowing the suspect’s actions were putting not only the officers' lives but the lives of the surrounding citizens in danger, Burke moved to an exposed position and brought down the gunman with lethal force.

Burke's quick thinking and courageous actions merited him the Purple Heart and Medal of Valor from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.
