Indiana Military Veterans Hall of Fame calls for 2023 nominations


The Indiana Military Veterans Hall of Fame is seeking nominations for the 2023 class of veteran honorees.

The not-for-profit organization, celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, honors Hoosier veterans for service during and after active duty.

In addition to categories for combat valor and veteran advocacy, there is a new classification for induction for community support, which recognizes veterans who have contributed exceptionally to their community, state and/or nation.

To be eligible, a nominee must meet any one of the basic criteria: Born in Indiana, entered military service in Indiana, lived in Indiana for a minimum of five years, must have been honorably discharged and must be free of felony convictions.

All branches of the Armed Forces, all ages, living or deceased, and males and females will be considered equally. The nomination packet and criteria can be found online at

Nominations will be accepted through end of day Aug. 1.

Nominees will be honored at the annual induction ceremony and dinner to be held Nov. 10 at The Garrison on Old Fort Harrison, 6002 N. Post Road, Lawrence. Tickets will be available for purchase soon at

Inductees in the hall, founded in 2013, are honored at the organization’s memorial building at 5360 Herbert Lord Road, Lawrence. The freestanding building is the only known memorial of its kind in the nation and is open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
