HAMPTON ROADS, Va. - News 3 and the Hampton Roads Chamber are honoring men and women who serve our communities in public safety who have performed acts of exceptional merit, distinguished service, remarkable bravery, and uncommon courage. This year, it is more important than ever to show our first responders respect and gratitude during the 2021 Valor Awards.
The Hampton Roads Chamber means business, and they are committed to being an impactful advocate, powerful economic partner, inspiring igniter and regional collaborator.
