Don’t miss the last chance to honor veterans who have served their communities following military service. The deadline for nominations for the Ohio Veterans Hall of Fame Class of 2016 is June 30.
The Ohio Veterans Hall of Fame was established in 1992 to recognize the achievements of veterans in community service after their military service ended. Charter members of the Hall’s Class of 1993 included the six Ohio military veterans who were elected President of the United States and all Medal of Honor recipients from Ohio. Honorees include astronauts, government officials, police officers, community leaders, and veterans’ advocates.
The Hall of Fame Executive Committee, made up of veterans, selects not more than 20 inductees annually. Men and women chosen for induction into the Hall come from all eras, all branches of service, and all walks of life.
The deadline for nominations for the Class of 2016 is June 30. Nomination guidelines and forms are available at dvs.ohio.gov/VETERANS_HALL_OF_FAME.
