The Oklahoma National Guard presents its highest civilian honor to emergency personnel in a Muskogee County town.

Major General Michael Thompson presented the “Thunderbird Medal”, Saturday, to a group of first responders in Braggs.

The award was for their performance during last spring’s devastating flooding. The flooding cut off the town and left it as a rural island for days.
