Camden Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 5928 honored a Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) deputy and his wife, a nurse at KershawHealth, for saving a North Carolina’s soldier’s life in October. During a Feb. 20 banquet, Post 5928 named KCSO Deputy Cody Blackmon as its Law Enforcement Officer of the Year and his wife, Amy, as Outstanding Emergency Medical Assistant of the Year. The post honored the couple for coming to the aid of U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Allan Armstrong right after Armstrong’s motorcycle collided with a Ford F-250 that pulled into his path on U.S. 1.
