New exhibit pays tribute to Hoosiers who died in the 9/11 terrorist attacks

INDIANAPOLIS -- A new exhibit pays tribute to the Hoosiers who died in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

The Indiana War Museum display features the story of Katie Mcloskey -- the South Bend native who died in the World Trade Center.

There's also a piece of steel from the one of Twin Towers and limestone from the Pentagon.

Volunteers say the exhibit will teach future generations about what happened on 9/11, and show how important it is to stand up for our country!

"We've got a piece of history that people will never forget. It's kind of like remembering Pearl Harbor," said Chuck Crist, Museum Volunteer. "When people come in, it really does bring it home to them. So, they can really connect with that."

The Indiana War Museum will be open this Sunday -- the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks. Admission is free.
