SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – The Springfield Veterans’ Activities Committee is now accepting nominations for the 2021 Veteran of the Year.

“I want to thank the Veterans’ Activities Committee for their continued and unyielding support of our veterans and their families. Special thanks to our Veterans’ Services Director Tom Belton and Deputy Director Joe DeCaro who continue to lead our City of Springfield’s Veterans’ Services Department and providing our brave and dedicated veterans and their families the care, compassion and service they need and deserve,” said Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno.
