HARTFORD, Conn. (CBS Connecticut and AP) – Connecticut officials are seeking nominations for this year’s class of inductees to the state Veterans Hall of Fame.
Democratic Lt. Gov. Nancy Wyman and Department of Veterans Affairs Commissioner Sean Connolly are urging the public to submit their nominations before the Sept. 23 deadline.
The Connecticut Veterans Hall of Fame recognizes veterans who have made significant contributions to their communities after leaving military service. The hall inducts at least 10 Connecticut veterans every year based on nominations, recommendations by an executive committee and final selection by the lieutenant governor.
Nominees must have lived in Connecticut for at least five years, received an honorable discharge from the military, be of good moral character and have no felony convictions.
Information on how to submit nominations is available at www.ct.gov/ctva.
