PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

The Oregon State Police trooper that was shot 12 times on Christmas Day was recently given a handmade quilt to honor his strength and courage.

Trooper Nic Cederberg and his wife, Portland Police Bureau officer Hayley Shelton, were awarded their own hand-stitched “Quilts of Valor” from the Quilts of Valor Foundation.

The Quilts of Valor Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting service members and veterans in need with comforting Quilts of Valor.

Oregon State Police shared images of the award ceremony on Facebook. Foundation organizers said they were so inspired by Nic and Haley’s courage that they decided to present them with two beautiful quilts.

The Quilts of Valor Foundation has awarded over 164,000 quilts to those in need. Learn more at QOVF.org.

Trooper Cederberg, a U.S. Army veteran, was shot 12 times while pursuing murder suspect James Tylka on Dec. 25, 2016. After extensive surgeries and recovery time, he was named North America's Trooper of the Year in April. 

An investigation later determined that Trooper Cederberg was justified in his use of force against a suspect.
