Medal of Bravery

I am proud to say that this is one of our long time family friends, and my dad was bursting with pride when he told me about this. Because of Dennis our other long time friend is still alive today.
Dennis Louis Parker, M.B.,
Chilliwack, British Columbia
Medal of Bravery

On July 27, 2001, parole officer Dennis Parker saved his colleague from further injury at the hands of a man armed with a metal baseball bat, in Chilliwack, British Columbia. Mr. Parker was sitting in his office when he heard the woman scream and, through a window, witnessed her trying to run away from her armed assailant in a nearby parking lot. Without hesitation, Mr. Parker ran out of the building and raced to the woman's rescue. He confronted the violent aggressor who turned on him, taking two-handed swings at him with the bat, striking him twice full force before taking off. Mr. Parker sustained a broken wrist and injuries to his forearms in his efforts to protect his colleague.
