Rancho Cordova honors hometown hero, Anthony Sadler.  Mr. Sadler is the gentleman pictured at the far right in the photo above. Being honored is becoming a regular event for Sadler and his two friends.  Sadler, was one of three hero’s on a high-speed train to Paris back in August.  As you will recall, the Sacramento-area trio, bravely working together, stopped a crazed gunman from carrying out what could have been a horrible massacre. Anthony Sadler’s parents were included in the honors recently.

A Special Tie to Rancho Cordova

Sadler and his parents are longtime Rancho Cordova residents.  The family has called Rancho Cordova home for over 15 years. Recently, Anthony with his parents by his side, led the pledge of allegiance at Rancho Cordova’s City Hall. In a celebratory and proud moment, the Sadler’s received the keys to the city.

The Paris Cafe Shooting Incident

Due to the recent and tragic events at a Paris Cafe and Concert Hall, the Sadler family quickly downplayed their celebration.  The family, taking the focus off themselves, encouraged the public to remember the lives lost in this recent tragedy. Sadler explained how hard it was to see footage of the recent shooting. He was deeply saddened that this could happen in Paris so soon after what he and his friends did this past summer to prevent a similar massacre.
