2020 Induction Ceremony
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected many facets of our day-to-day lives including the Hall of Fame. During a joint meeting of the Board of Directors the November ceremony and the heath and safety of the attendees was discussed including the ability to conduct appropriate social distancing. The decisions of the Board of Directors are (1) cancel the 2020 ceremony, (2) there will be no Class of 2020, (3) the next set of veterans inducted will be the Class of 2021, (4) the current nomination period will be extended through August 1, 2021 and (5) all nominations submitted for the Class of 2020 will be considered for the Class of 2021. The decision of the Board is for the health, safety and well-being of all concerned.
It is the goal of the IMVHOF for each inductee to be afforded due honor and respect for their sacrifices and services to the nation during the induction banquet and ceremony. Tickets, when on sale, will be offered on a first come, first serve basis. Additionally, no table purchase options will be available. With the exception of reserved seats for inductees, their guest and dignitaries all seating will be open seating. If you have a group you would like to keep together, we encourage you to have someone arrive early and hold a table for your group.
IMVHOF inducted its first class of Hoosier heroes on November 7, 2014. During the ceremony each inductee receives the Hall of Fame medallion and certificate.
About the Medallion
The medallion represents the IMVHOF and its relationship to the State of Indiana. The front depicts the State of Indiana and the name of the organization. The back depicts the Indiana state flag on which the inductee’s name is engraved encircled by the names of the five branches of the U.S. Armed Forces.
