Established in 2005, the Veterans Hall of Fame recognizes the continued service of Connecticut veterans who have made significant contributions to their communities after leaving military service. The Veterans Hall of Fame is administered by the Connecticut Department of Veterans Affairs and the Connecticut Military Department.
Residents are encouraged to make nominations to the Connecticut Veterans Hall of Fame Class of 2017 when the application process commences late next summer or contact Sen. Hwang at Tony.Hwang@cga.ct.gov or 800 842-1421.
