    SACRAMENTO — Calipatria State Prison correctional officer Alfred Gascon was recently announced as the recipient of CDCR’s Medal of Valor for helping save the life of a victim of a vehicle collision on June 7, 2019, in Holtville.

    The day of the incident coincided with Gascon’s final day of working at Chuckawalla Valley State Prison, and on his return to the Valley from Blythe he decided to take a route home different than usual.
