“Many veterans continue to serve their branch, country and community through volunteerism. It is the goal of the Kentucky Veterans Hall of Fame to honor them,” said Terry Vannarsdale, KVHOF Nominating/Processing Director. “As we assessed the applications, it became clear that these applicants had a strong desire to help others. It is fair and responsible to recognize them for their extended service. »
HB Deatherage, Founder and Executive Director of KVHOF, said, “Veterans are sometimes taken for granted, and these events are a wonderful way to honor those who deserve recognition for serving the Commonwealth of Kentucky. This is the largest class we have selected.
