Indiana State Museum seeking photos of Hoosier veterans

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indiana State Museum is seeking photos of Hoosiers who have served in the military.

The Indianapolis museum says the photos will be used in a mural for an exhibit called “Heroes from the Heartland.” The exhibit will run from Nov. 1 through Veterans Day, Nov. 11.

The museum’s Katelyn Coyne says the mural will thank veterans and active-duty personnel “for all that they do to secure our safety and freedom.”

Photos should be emailed by Oct. 21 to kcoyne@indianamuseum.org and include the veteran’s name, date of service, military division, hometown and nominator’s name.

The museum also encourages special stories about veterans such as those participating in D-Day or serving as combat medics in Afghanistan.
