The University of New Hampshire held its 24th annual Veterans Day and ROTC Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony and Scholarship Awards event Friday, Nov. 4, inducting three new members into the ROTC Hall of Fame and awarding scholarships to a pair of cadets.

Retired Lt. Col. Andrew J. Corrow ’92, Retired Lt. Col. Charles “Chuck” Thompson ’66 and retired Capt. Charles “Eddie” Silva ’61 joined more than 70 fellow ROTC Hall of Fame inductees who have been recognized since the initial ceremony was held in 1997. Silva's award was given posthumously (his family was on hand to accept on his behalf.)

The UNH ROTC Hall of Fame recognizes those who have participated in the Air Force or Army ROTC programs at UNH. Inductees are selected for outstanding service to the country, the state of New Hampshire, their community and/or the University of New Hampshire. Not all of the inductees are career military officers. Many were career educators, business owners and public servants.
