Indiana military veterans hall of fame opens in Lawrence


INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - The Indiana Military Veterans Hall of Fame is now open in Lawrence.

The hall of fame honors Indiana's own veterans.

There have been nominations from all over the state for veterans who served in World War II to the current war on terror.

"This hall of fame will stand as a reminder to all Hoosiers that we must always remember those sacrifices," said Marty Dzieglowicz, The American Legion Department of Indiana Commander

When you visit, you'll notice engraved bricks at the entrance.
