Award for Heroism

Date: 01/13/2010


Portland Police Department presented AEI Director Marty Pottenger with an Award for Heroism at their annual awards ceremony on January 24, 2009. Lt. Mike Sauschuck presented the award saying that it had been placed in the ceremony's 'heroism' section because "We couldn't think of anything more heroic than walking into police headquarters and asking "How about writing some poems?" Lt. Sauschuck also commented that prior to his involvement in the Police Poetry Calendar he would have "rather fought 4 guys at the same time by myself than write a poem" taking the time to point out that he wasn't assuming he would have won that fight.
