Ohio Veterans Hall of Fame

Deadline for nominations set

The deadline is Sunday, June 30, to submit nominations for the Ohio Veterans Hall of Fame.

The Ohio Veterans Hall of Fame recognizes and honors Ohio veterans who, after their honorable military service, put their skills and abilities to work in their local communities and, by their continued service and positive accomplishments inspired their fellow citizens.

Other than having served honorably on active duty, details of a nominee's military accomplishments are not considered for this award.

Additional information, nomination guidelines and forms, as well stories of past inductees, are available at

The Ohio Veterans Hall of Fame was established in 1992 by former Gov. George Voinovich to recognize the post-military achievements of outstanding veterans.

The Hall of Fame Executive Committee, made up of veterans, serves as advisor to the Hall of Fame and selects not more than 20 inductees annually from nominations provided by all citizens of Ohio. Men and women chosen for induction into the Hall come from all eras, all branches of service and all walks of life. The members of the Ohio Veterans Hall of Fame are honored in a permanent display on the second floor of the Riffe Center in downtown Columbus.
