Hall of Firsts

North Carolina Military Hall of Firsts

North Carolina has a long and celebrated military history which dates back to the early history of the founding of our great country.  Our servicemen and servicewomen have played, and continue to play, a major role in the defense of our Nation, and to protect our constitutional freedoms, primary of which are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.

The mission of the NORTH CAROLINA MILITARY HALL OF FIRSTS (NCMHOF) is to publicly emphasize the honor brought to our state and nation by the sacrifice of North Carolina Military Veterans and their families; to promote equal and inclusive opportunities for veterans and their families in all aspects of society; and to identify and support all individuals and organizations that contribute to this important mission.

Honorees to the NORTH CAROLINA MILITARY HALL OF FIRSTS are to be persons who, by the excellence of their military career in or connection to civic service have brought substantial honor, recognition, and esteem to themselves, their families, and to the Great State of North Carolina. 

To that end the Advisory Committee of the Military Hall of Firsts annually selects North Carolinians for induction from nominees submitted from across the country who call The Old North State home.
