Nominations are now being accepted for the Martinsville-Henry County’s “Outstanding Military Veteran” award for 2020.
The award will go to the nominee judged by the selection committee to represent best what service to the country and our community means.
The award was created in 2009 by the Henry County Board of Supervisors at the suggestion of board member Debra Buchanan.
With the support of the Martinsville City Council, the award was expanded in 2013 to allow nominations of both Martinsville and Henry County veterans.
Nomination forms are available from the Martinsville website – www.martinsville-va.gov, and the county website – www.henrycountyva.gov.
Forms also are available at the City Municipal Building and the County Administrator’s office. All nominations must be received at the City Manager’s or County Administrator’s offices by 5 p.m. on Thursday, October 22.
The winner of the award will be announced at the Veterans Day Service, to be held at the HJDB Event Center on Wednesday, November 11, at 6 p.m.
