The Ohio House and Senate has awarded the Ohio Military Medal of Distinction to the families of 28 Ohio soldiers who lost their lives while serving our country during the past year.

“We are here today to honor 28 of Ohio's best.....sons and daughters, husband and wives, Moms and Dads, from Harrison up to Concord, Perrysburg down to South Bloomingville and the many cities, villages and townships in between. They came from many walks of life but were united in a common purpose and love of country. Although they are no longer with us, their presence will always be felt.”
