Carlos Easterday to be inducted in Columbus on Thursday evening

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- A Guernsey County man will be among 15 inducted into the Ohio Veterans Hall of Fame in a ceremony in Columbus on Thursday.
Carlos M. Easterday of Pleasant City is a U.S. Army Veteran who served in the Korean War. Easterday is a Bronze Star recipient, and in 2009, was named one of Guernsey County's Veterans of the Year.
After serving his country abroad, Easterday returned to Guernsey County to serve the less-fortunate in his community during the holidays. He and his wife began offering a free community dinner on Christmas Day, which now serves around 600 people each year.
Easterday and 14 other new members of the Hall of Fame are to be inducted in a ceremony Thursday night at Veterans' Memorial Auditorium. Hall officials say it was established to recognize Ohio veterans who put their skills and abilities to work in their local communities after their military service.
This year's inductees include veterans from various branches of the military, including the Army, Navy, Marine Corps and the Ohio Air National Guard. They include veterans who served in World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War.
The Hall of Fame is taking nominations for next year's class. The deadline to submit nominations for 2014 is June 30.
