SHERIFF SHOAR RECEIVES COLONEL ED TAYLOR AWARD:
Yesterday, Sheriff David B. Shoar was awarded this year’s “Colonel Ed Taylor Award” from the St. Johns County Veteran’s Council. Sheriff Shoar was nominated and unanimously approved by the Council’s Executive Committee due to the tremendous impact he has made in supporting our veterans.
The award is named for one of the most distinguished war veterans from St. Augustine, Colonel Ed Taylor. The award was established in 2008 to recognize individuals who are considered true champions in supporting our veterans. Taylor, who passed away two years ago at the age of 84, served as an Army officer for 30 years and was the recipient of three Silver Star medals, three Distinguished Flying Cross medals, four Bronze Star medals with “V” for valor, the Purple Heart and many others. Colonel Taylor also served as the chairman for the Veteran’s Council of St. Johns County.
Chairman of the St. Johns County Veteran’s Council, Bill Dudley, presented Sheriff Shoar with the prestigious award Thursday evening during the regular meeting of the Veterans Council, where Shoar was in attendance. During the presentation, Shoar was praised for his tremendous impact supporting our veterans, to include financial contributions that have made many projects possible, which would not have come to fruition without Sheriff Shoar’s involvement.
Sheriff Shoar stated, “As a 24 year veteran who served during both peace and wartime, I know how important this council and its efforts are to those who have served this great nation”. He continued,”I am truly honored to be presented this award, and for the opportunity to support the efforts of this organization and those it serves.”
