There are two museums, 3 parks and 24 acres of monuments, statues, sculptures and fountains right in the heart of downtown Indianapolis. The War Memorial Commission primary mission is: to commemorate the valor and sacrifice of the U.S. Armed Forces and especially to honor Hoosier veterans and Indiana's role in the nation's conflicts.
The Indian War Memorials Foundation just launched a "Bricks of Remembrance" program to memorialize veterans. Each brick will be engraved with the name, rank, branch and dates of service and will be placed at Monument Circle. They will encircle the Soldiers and Sailors Monument. You can contribute to the placement for $100 tax-deductible for each brick. They will be installed on a quarterly basis.
