The Oswego County Legislature’s Human Services Committee recently presented a certificate to Hannibal’s Ronald Greenleaf, naming him as the county’s first Veteran of the Year. The Electricians Mate 5th Class was recognized for his honorable service in our nation’s military, his devotion to our country and his contributions as an honored community member. Greenleaf served in the U.S. Navy for three years, including an 18-month tour in Vietnam aboard the U.S.S. Hartnett County. He received two Vietnam Service medals, two Vietnam Campaign medals, a Combat Action ribbon and a Presidential Unit Citation. He has also served his community with distinction, dedicating his time to fundraising for the Hannibal and Fulton United Methodist Church, donating food that has been harvested from his land, and tending to the needs of his fellow veterans.
