Join staff and visitors on Friday, November 11, 2016, at 2:00 pm at the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore Visitor Center as we honor our nation’s veterans.
We will show the film Heroes on Deck in the Visitor Center’s auditorium. The film chronicles the role that Chicago and Lake Michigan played in the training of over 15,000 World War II Navy Pilots. The story includes how the pilots were trained and the recovery of some of the over 100 aircraft that ended up at the bottom of Lake Michigan. In addition, there will be a number of military artifacts on display that can be viewed before or after the film.
The Indiana Dunes Visitor Center is located at 1215 North State Road 49, about one mile north of Interstate 94. For more information on this or other programs at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, call 219-395-1882 or check out the park’s website at www.nps.gov/indu.
