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 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.
