Our organization is proud to have such outstanding and dedicated Veterans on our Board.
The Class of 2020 was chosen from among 136 nominations. This year’s class joins 895 Ohio veterans who have been inducted since 1992 and represents all eras, branches of service, and walks of life.
FROM OHIO DEPARTMENT OF VETERANS SERVICES PRESS RELEASE:
The Ohio Veterans Hall of Fame was established in 1992 by former Gov. George Voinovich to recognize the post-military achievements of outstanding Ohio veterans. Charter members of the Hall of Fame’s Class of 1992 include the six Ohio veterans who were elected President of the United States as well as Medal of Honor recipients from Ohio. Honorees of the past 28 years include astronauts, entrepreneurs, volunteers, community leaders, safety officers, veteran advocates, and government officials.
The members of the Ohio Veterans Hall of Fame are honored in a permanent display near the Ohio Statehouse at the Vern Riffe Center for Government and the Arts, 77 S. High St., Columbus, Ohio.
There are 20 outstanding inductees who will be honored for their accomplishments and achievements at the 29th annual Induction Ceremony in November for their post-military service. This stellar class of candidates represents 16 Ohio counties and four military branches. Ohio Governor Mike DeWine unveiled the class at his press briefing this afternoon, during which time he praised their accomplishments.
Bios and photos of the 2020 Class will be available at OhioVets.gov in October 2020.
