Two New York City police officers who were ambushed and killed in the line of duty were recognized for their courage on Wednesday when President Biden awarded them the Medal of Valor, the nation’s highest honor for bravery by a public safety officer.

"From small towns and bity cities, you're cut from the same cloth," Biden said of the honorees. "You run into danger when everyone else runs away from danger. You possess a selflessness that's literally impossible to explain. And your bravery is one that inspires."
