HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ State officials are honoring a dozen more inductees to the Connecticut Veterans Hall of Fame.

A ceremony is planned for Wednesday afternoon in the atrium of the Legislative Office Building in Hartford. Lt. Gov. Nancy Wyman, Department of Veterans Affairs Commissioner Linda Schwartz and state Sen. Carlo Leone of Stamford, the co-chairman of the legislature’s veterans committee, will join the Class of 2012 inductees, their family members and friends.

Carmine Vaccaro of Stamford, who served as a U.S. Navy Hospital Corpsman during the Korean War and is active in the Stamford community, is among the latest inductees.

The Hall of Fame recognizes distinguished veterans who have made significant contributions to their communities since leaving military service.
