Ohio is the first state to recognize its veterans in such a way.
The Ohio Military Hall of Fame recognizes those Ohio veterans who both experienced hostile fire and received medals for valor.
Our own Walt Reiner of Reiner Realty and Consultants, Inc. serves on the OMHOF Board of Directors and is interested in promoting both veterans' and veterans' causes.
The first class of veterans was inducted into the Ohio Military Hall of Fame (OMHOF) on July 7, 2000, and each recipient was awarded the Ohio Medal of Valor.
The annual induction ceremony is always held on the first Friday in May in the Atrium of the Ohio Statehouse.
Having served three and one-half years in the U.S. Army, one of which was during the Vietnam War era, Walt held many duties, including Platoon Leader, Company Commander, and Aviator.
He was awarded the Bronze Star Medal, the Distinguished Flying Cross, 22 Air Medals, the Vietnam Service Medal, the Vietnam Campaign Medal, and the National Defense Service Medal.
