On November 11, 2019, the County of Putnam presented its local servicemen with a Veterans Service Medal, a physical representation of the County's appreciation for the sacrifices each veteran made to protect the freedom our nation is fortunate to continue to enjoy. Now, over two years after this historic ceremony, the Veterans Service Medal Advisory Panel has made it possible to bestow the same honor to Putnam County Sheriff's Deputy Corey Berke.
On behalf of the Putnam County government, we thank you for your service and congratulate you on this well-deserved recognition and honor.
Sheriff McConville said, "Putnam County residents and the Sheriff’s Office are extremely proud of Deputy Berke and his service to our Country. Deputy Berke is an outstanding example of service to others which is exemplary of all members of the Sheriff’s Office."
