CALDWELL -- Two Canyon County deputies who were wounded in the line of duty received a special honor Thursday.

Michael Roth and Brad Childers were each given the Combat Cross Medal and Medal of Valor.

Both deputies were shot several times back in October during a foot chase with an armed man. They tell us it has been a difficult few months.

"It's very sobering incident that took place," said Childers. "It affects your family tremendously. It's emotionally and mentally just as hard on them as it was on me."

The deputies say they're thankful for all the support they've received from officers and the community.

Dispatchers working the night of the shooting were also recognized for their efforts.
