Recognition of Veterans through an Honors Campaign

Medal of Honor recipient John Crews, a WWII Army veteran, and General Dennis Reimer, US Army Chief of Staff at the time, when they were inducted into the very first Oklahoma Military Hall of Fame in 1999.

 In addition to recording the experiences of veterans in your community, you Honors Campaign may include varied methods of recognizing them for their service. See Appendix H for a nomination form. Here are some examples:

  • Inclusion in community veterans’ history/profile: You may choose to produce a community book compiling the bios of all veterans participating in your campaign, or even a unique publication format you envision. Your OKMHF Ambassador will help you work through the details with technical support.
  • Personal Biography published: You may choose to recognize any veteran articipating in your campaign by seeing that his or her biography is published in a personal memoir.
  • Honors trip feature award: Should you decide to include one of the Honors Trips in your campaign, a special award, or recognition, will be presented to each veteran present consisting of a certificate commemorating the event and the veteran.
  • Who’s Who Among Oklahoma Veterans: You may recognize any veteran in your community who was honorably discharged from a US military service and is willing to be interviewed and participate in your Honors Campaign effort by nominating him or her for inclusion in Who’s Who Among Oklahoma Veterans. You should arrange for either a local event to present the award(s), or participation in an Honors Trip event in Stillwater. A nomination packet may be requested through a supporting OKMHF Ambassador.
  • Induction into OKMHF: The highest praise we offer our state’s veterans is through induction into the OKMHF. Begun in 1999, some 200 Oklahoma veterans have been honored in this manner, at the annual Hall of Fame Induction ceremonies. Information on nominating individuals for induction may be found at
