COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Twenty new members are being inducted into the Ohio Veterans Hall of Fame in honor of their service to the community after serving in the military.
Ohio Lt. Governor Mary Taylor is helping honor the 2015 class at the induction ceremony Thursday at the Lincoln Theater in Columbus. The latest class joins 478 others veterans who are already in the Hall of Fame.
The Ohio Veterans Hall of Fame was established in 1992 to recognize the post-military achievements of veterans in community service after their military service ended. Charter members of the 1993 class included the six Ohio military veterans elected U.S. president and all of the state's Medal of Honor recipients.
Honorees over the past 22 years have included astronauts, government officials, police officers, community leaders and veterans' advocates.
