Avery County Deputy Honored By President Trump

An Avery County Sheriff's Deputy is now the recipient of the Medal of Valor.  

Lieutenant William Buchanan visited the East Room of the White House yesterday for the honor. 

President Trump says Buchanan "braved smoke, fire and explosion" to help pull a man from a burning vehicle two years ago.  

The Medal of Valor is the highest award for valor by public safety officers.
