Local Trooper Awarded Congressional Badge of Bravery

Local Trooper Awarded Congressional Badge of Bravery

Trooper S. Matthew Cochran received the Law Enforcement Congressional Badge of Bravery earlier this week, and for this, he makes this week's Super NoVA spot. The Badge of Bravery honors exceptional acts of bravery in the line of duty by law enforcement officers. Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA), Senator Webb (D-VA), and Senator Warner (D-VA), together presented Cochran with the award on Monday.

The honor comes to Cochran after he responded to an early morning fire at an apartment complex in Hillsville on January 9, 2010. Trooper Cochran entered the burning apartment building without protective gear after he heard screaming for help. He crawled through the flames and smoke to rescue the screaming woman.

According to Virginia State Police, thanks to Tropper Cochran, a Carroll County deputy, and a Hillsville police officer, all 37 residents of the complex were rescued because the group banged on doors to wake those who were still asleep.

Local NoVA Band, Crash Boom Bang, Films Music Video in Adams Morgan

Crash Boom Bang, a locally-based band, worked on filming a music video with 8112 Studios this past weekend at the District Underground. Crash Boom Bang produces a blend of rock and pop, and this particular music video is one of their biggest efforts to put them in the national spotlight thus far. The members of Crash Boom Bang are this week's Super NoVA for their musical talents and their ambitions to make it big.

"Our goal with this video is to literally have it everywhere. If it doesn't get on MTV or VH1 then somebody has not done their job," said Director Nicholas Cambata.
