City of Jacksonville Outstanding Veteran of the Year Awards
United States Veterans have played an important role in protecting our Country and freedom for many years. These individuals have willingly put themselves in harms way to defend the lives and liberties of others.
Jacksonville is proud of its bond with our local Veterans organizations and the Council of Veterans Organizations. Each year the City asks each group to nominate a Veteran from their organization for recognition as Outstanding Veteran of the Year.
Due to restrictions from COVID-19, the 2021 Awards will be present virtually. Images above are from award ceremonies from various years. Please click on the 2021 Outstanding Veterans Pictures and Bios for the most recent award recipients.
