‘Heroes from the Heartland’ to celebrate vets Nov. 1-11

Hoosiers will get to honor Indiana’s veterans and active military personnel this fall during the “Heroes from the Heartland” exhibition, Nov. 1 through Veterans Day at the Indiana State Museum. The exhibit will feature Hoosiers who have served or are currently serving in any branch of the military.

These stories will be featured on a photo mural at the museum as well as on the Web at theindychannel.
