|Take a look at the video for exciting news about Kentucky Veterans Hall of Fame Foundation.|
Mr. Gary Griesser talking about all that has been going on with The Kentucky Veterans Hall of Fame Foundation. 2012 has been an exciting year with many changes, additions. More excitement is currently taking place in 2013! We are within days of finalizing the home for KVHOF. Our 1st induction ceremonydate is real close to being announced. Wow what an exciting 2013 so far.
The foundation evolved out of a series of conversations in January of 2012 among H.B. Deatherage, Vietnam Veteran and CEO of the Boone County Veterans Memorial; Lorene Friedman, Co-Founder of the NKY Blue Star Mothers of America, Inc.; and Don Castle, concerned citizen and local business leader. After a dialogue exploring the need for a Kentucky Veteran of the Year Award, it was determined that such a project of inducting only one veteran would be virtually impossible...hence the idea to form a Kentucky Veterans Hall of Fame was brought to light since such a foundation did not exist in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. This was the motivation to create such an entity.
In the spring of 2012 a proposed bill was submitted to the Kentucky Senate and was passed by unanimous vote. The bill did not reach the House of Representatives for their vote, so a new resolution will be re-submitted in February of 2013.
In the near future, the KVHOFF shall seek legislative authority to establish this Hall of Fame and, with that, we hope to have support of veteran's service organizations and the Kentucky Department of Veterans Affairs in our quest to recognize the worthiest of veteran candidates.

The purpose for which the foundation has been organized is exclusively charitable and educational; more specifically, to honor Kentucky military veterans and to educate through the Kentucky Veterans Hall of Fame (KVHOF) Website their outstanding accomplishments.
At an annual banquet numerous Kentucky military veterans will be inducted into the hall of fame and awarded the "Hall of Fame Medallion" recognizing their military service to our nation and to the Commonwealth of Kentucky. The inductees will be selected for their valorous military service to our country and for their combined military/civilian service to our community, state and nation.

Remember when you use the coupon anytime during the day of the event, a percentage of the meal ticket will be donated to the Kentucky Hall Of Fame. This donation will help fund the Hall of Fame and the upcoming induction ceremony honoring the veterans.
