BOSTON- Tewksbury Police Officer Brian O'Neill, still recovering from a gunshot to the thigh last March, stood tall as he accepted a Medal of Valor from Lt. Gov. Kerry Healey yesterday.
His partner, Douglas Pratt, was next to him in the House chambers of the Statehouse. Both stared straight ahead as Healey draped a red, white and blue ribbon holding the medal around their necks.
