Guest Column From State Rep. Terry Johnson
Nominate a Veteran for the Ohio Veterans Hall of Fame
March 08, 2018
[ Terry Johnson Home | Terry Johnson Press ]

Our veterans deserve the highest praise and recognition for the sacrifices they have made to serve our country. Our most distinguished men and women are inducted into the Ohio Veterans Hall of Fame, which recognizes those who served in the United States Armed Forces and continue to contribute to our communities, state, and nation.

If you have a veteran in your life that deserves to hold a place in the Hall of Fame, then I highly encourage you to nominate them. The program sets the standard for recognizing the contributions of Ohio’s veterans, especially what they have accomplished beyond their military service.

To be under consideration, an eligible veteran must meet the following criteria: must be a past or current Ohio resident, have received an honorable discharge, and be of good moral character. The deadline to nominate an individual for 2018 is June 1. Guidelines and more information can be found at, along with a form to fill out and mail in as a part of the nomination packet.

Nominate a veteran today and honor their post-military accomplishments. I know the men and women accepted will be grateful for and humbled by the recognition. Our veterans have earned so much more than we as a society have given them, but the Ohio Veterans Hall of Fame is one way we can thank them for heeding the call to duty and protecting us as families, neighbors, communities, and as a nation.
