Veteran Students Assisted in the Presentation at Cuyahoga County Community College

CLEVELAND, OH —U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) presented overdue or replacement medals earned for military service to six Cleveland-area veterans and their family members at Cuyahoga Community College today. Three veterans who are currently attending Tri-C assisted in the medals presentation.

“Ohio’s veterans made invaluable contributions to our fight for worldwide peace and democracy. Our state’s service members have answered the call to action without delay throughout our nation’s history,” Brown said. “As a member of the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee, one of the most rewarding aspects of my job is fighting for Ohio’s veterans by ensuring that they receive the benefits they so richly deserve. It is an honor to deliver medals to these veterans and their family members.”
