About

The Indiana Military Veterans Hall of Fame (IMVHOF), a 501(c)3 organization, was founded in 2013.

The IMVHOF’s stated objective is “to publically emphasize the honor brought to our state and nation by the sacrifice of Indiana military veterans and their families.”

On April 25, 2013, the Indiana House of Representatives and the Indiana Senate recognized the Indiana Military Veterans Hall of Fame organization. Indiana follows only a handful of other states who have established similar organizations.

The year 2014 marked the first induction of Hoosier Veterans into the Hall of Fame. Nominations came from all corners of the state and reflected contributions made by military veterans from World War II through the current engagements in the Middle East and elsewhere.

On February 11, 2016 during the Second Regular Session of the 119th General Assembly of the State of Indiana, State Representatives John L. Bartlett, James R. Baird, Karlee D. Macer, State Senators Luke Kenley III, James E. Banks and Lonnie M. Randolph introduced and adopted by voice vote House Concurrent Resolution No. 32 honoring the 2014 Indiana Military Hall of Fame inductees.

On January 11, 2016 during the Second Regular Session of the 119th General Assembly of the State of Indiana the sitting State Representatives and State Senators introduced and adopted by voice vote House Concurrent Resolution No. 2 honoring the 2015 Indiana Military Hall of Fame inductees.
