At nearly the one-year anniversary of the worst mass shooting in modern United States history, eight employees from Ironwood State Prison (ISP) and Chuckawalla Valley State Prison (CVSP) were awarded the highest honor bestowed by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) for their bravery at the Route 91 Harvest country music festival last year in Las Vegas.

The 33rd Annual Medal of Valor Ceremony on Sept. 14 included eight other recipients from CDCR facilities elsewhere in the state who also had attended the concert.
