An outreach specialist at the Fayetteville VA Vet Center was honored at an induction banquet on October 27.
Command Sergeant Major Timothy Farley from Paragould, Arkansas, has worked at the VA Center for the past eight years. Farley and 14 others were inducted to the Arkansas Military Veterans’ Hall of Fame (AMVHOF).
He is a decorated combat veteran whose military awards include the Legion of Merit, the Bronze Star Medal, and the Meritorious Service Medal. He is a lifetime member-at-large of Disabled American Veterans (DAV) and Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW), and a 3-time graduate of University of Arkansas. Mr. Farley was inducted into the AMVHOF by Senator John N. Boozman and Congressman Bruce E. Westerman.
“This recognition is truly humbling and certainly appreciated,” said Farley. “I am grateful that I am able to continue my service as a VA employee each day working alongside Arkansas veterans at the Fayetteville Vet Center.”
Annually, up to 15 Arkansas military veterans are inducted into the AMVHOF, each one being recognized by his or her military service to the nation and to the State of Arkansas.
Of the 15 inductees, 10 are selected exclusively for their valorous military service to our country. Up to five additional Arkansas veterans can be selected for their combined military and civilian service to the community, state and nation. All inductees are permanently enshrined in an AMVHOF public display located near the State Treasurer’s office in the Arkansas State Capitol, thus becoming a perpetual part of official Arkansas history.
