The Indiana Military Veterans Hall of Fame is asking for nominations for its fourth class of veterans to honor. The not-for-profit organization honors Hoosier veterans for service during and after active duty.
To date, the Hall of Fame has recognized 46 men and women for their military and civilian service.
Up to 15 veterans will be honored for military service achievements and/or community contributions. To be eligible, a nominee must meet any one of these criteria:
• Born in Indiana
• Entered military service in Indiana
• Lived in Indiana for a minimum of eight years
All branches of the U.S. Armed Forces, all ages, living or deceased, and males and females will be considered. The induction ceremony will take place on Nov. 3, at Ft. Benjamin Harrison.
The nomination packet and criteria can be found at imvhof.com/nominate/. Nominations will be accepted through the end of the day on August 1.
The Indiana Military Veterans Hall of Fame broke ground on a permanent building on Sept. 11, 2016, near the American Legion’s Department of Indiana Headquarters in Lawrence. The building will pay tribute to all five branches of the military services and recognize veterans who have been inducted into the Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame has partnered with Indiana Credit Unions to raise funds for construction and plans to begin building this spring.
