The Indiana 911 Memorial Committee has announced plans to expand the Memorial located at 421 W. Ohio St., Indianapolis, Indiana. A generous donation of $50,000 from the Indiana Department of the American Legion will be presented at a fundraiser kickoff on Sept. 11 to begin the effort to raise money for the $450,000 project.
In case of inclement weather, the event will be conducted at the Indiana War Memorial, 55 E. Michigan St. The public and media are encouraged to attend, while wearing masks and social distancing.
The Indiana 911 Memorial was built on the 10th anniversary of the attacks and was dedicated to the brave first responders and people who perished that day. Since September 11, 2001, more than 5,000 US military service members have died fighting terrorism and protecting our freedoms.
The project will also include the addition of national and state flags and an 800-pound piece of Indiana limestone from the Pentagon crash site on the 30 by 10-foot memorial extension. A “Survivor Tree” from the World Trade Center will also be planted on site. The goal is to complete the extension and re-dedicate the site on the 20th anniversary on Sept. 11, 2021.
We hope to see you there!
Together, we change lives for Veterans, their families and their communities.
