Nominations sought for CT Veterans Hall of Fame

September 7, 2017

Please take a moment to review, recommend a veteran for the Hall of Fame, or forward to a veteran you may know.

Connecticut Veterans Hall of Fame

The Connecticut Veterans Hall of Fame honors veterans who served their country and have now dedicated themselves to their community through public service - they are currently accepting nominations for the 2017 class.

The awardees will join the 126 current and former citizens of Connecticut that have been inducted to date. If you know a veteran who has made a difference in your community, I encourage you to nominate him or her for this distinction. Veterans can also be inducted posthumously.

Nominees must meet the following qualifications:

  • Must have resided in Connecticut for a minimum of five years.
  • Meet the definition of a "veteran" under the Connecticut General Statutes 27-103.
  • Have received an honorable discharge from the U.S. Armed Forces and provide discharge papers verifying honorable military service.
  • Be of good moral character and have no felony convictions.

The deadline for nominations is September 29. The application and instructions are available here. I look forward to honoring the 2017 class of veterans for all they have done for their country and their communities.
