COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Officials with the Ohio Veterans Hall of Fame say time is running out to nominate veterans for the hall’s 2014 class.

The director of Ohio’s Department of Veterans Services says the deadline is June 30 for nominations to the hall honoring veterans who have served their communities after military service. Director Tim Gorrell (guh-REHL’) says veterans selected for the honor are “the heart and soul” of Ohio’s communities.

The Ohio Veterans Hall of Fame was established in 1992. Charter members include the six Ohio military veterans elected U.S. president and all of Ohio’s Medal of Honor recipients. Honorees have included astronauts and community leaders, among others.

The hall’s executive committee selects not more than 20 inductees annually. This year’s class will be inducted in a Nov. 6 ceremony in Columbus.
