COLUMBUS - The Ohio Veterans Hall of Fame exists to recognize the veterans in this state who continue to serve. But don't delay submitting a nomination - the deadline is June 30 to submit nominations for this year.
The purpose of the Ohio Veterans Hall of Fame is to honor Ohio veterans who, after their military service is over, put their skills and abilities to work in their local communities - and by their continued service and positive accomplishments, inspired their fellow citizens.  
"Selection to the Ohio Veterans Hall of Fame is one of the greatest honors a veteran can receive," said Tim Gorrell, director of the Ohio Department of Veterans Services. "These veterans are our neighbors and our friends, the people who make a difference every day in their communities by doing all the things that need to be done... and very deserving veterans for the Ohio Veterans Hall of Fame."
