Ohio Veterans
Hall of Fame

Recognizing Post-military Achievements of Ohio’s Outstanding Veterans The Ohio Veterans Hall of Fame recognizes the efforts of Ohio’s distinguished men and women who have worn the uniform of our nation’s armed forces and then continued to contribute to their communities, state and nation through exceptional acts of volunteerism, advocacy, professional distinction, public service and philanthropy. The Ohio Veterans Hall of Fame includes captains of industry, professional educators, political champions and civic supporters. Our honorees include some of Ohio’s most recognized citizens including astronaut Neil Armstrong, actor Paul Newman, business entrepreneur and philanthropist R. David Thomas, and surgeon and inventor Dr. Henry Heimlich. The program is not intended to focus on what Ohio military members accomplished while in uniform but rather what has occurred in their lives outside of and beyond their military service. Selection and induction into the Ohio Veterans Hall of Fame is a great honor. The program sets the standard for recognizing the contributions of Ohio’s military veterans. Nominate a veteran today. Honor and recognize their post-military achievements.
