Ohio veterans official to be added to hall of fame

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The director of the state’s Department of Veterans Services will be among those inducted into a military hall of fame in Ohio next month.

The Ohio Military Hall of Fame for Valor says Veterans Services Director Tom Moe (moh) will be inducted with 19 other veterans in a May 3 ceremony at the Statehouse in Columbus. Moe is a retired U.S. Air Force colonel and Vietnam War veteran who earned two Silver Stars, the Distinguished Flying Cross and the Bronze Star Medal for valor, among other decorations.

Hall officials say the 2013 class includes veterans from various armed services who performed “heroically” in combat actions.

The May ceremony will bring the total number of inductees to 238, including four who received the Medal of Honor.
