Gibson County Deputy Joshua Johnson was presented with a Purple Heart by Sheriff Thomas. Deputy Johnson was injured by gunfire while helping serve a search warrant back in December. Deputy Johnson was able to make a full recovery and return to work at the end of January.
Disclaimer from the Gibson County Sheriff’s Office: We are aware that the Purple Heart shown is the military version and not the Law Enforcement one. The wrong version came in, the Law Enforcement version has not arrived yet. Having said that, we did not want to delay recognizing Deputy Johnson any longer, no offense toward Military personnel is meant in any way.
