The Town of Veteran logo was designed by George W. Acker, former Highway Superintendent for the Town of Veteran, in the mid 1960’s.  The Town adopted it for use on its highway equipment, etc.  The design of the logo pays respect to the many men and women from the Town of Veteran who answered the call and proudly served their country throughout history.  This striking emblem is proudly displayed on the Town of Veteran Historical Society letterhead.
