Join the Indiana World War I Centennial Committee in celebrating and honoring the life of Hoosier WWI hero Aaron Fisher.
During a time in American history when African Americans faced so much adversity from the prejudices held by much of the country, Aaron Richard Fisher was able to overcome and prove himself a remarkable soldier whose courage and determination placed him among America’s heroes. His unwavering dedication to his country and community throughout his life consistently demonstrated a selfless commitment to the safety and well-being of others and a will to stand up and protect what he knew was right. Fisher represented his home town of Lyles Station, Indiana with distinction and will be known among the finest soldiers and citizens produced by the state of Indiana.
There will be an event on September 3, 2018 at the Lyles Station Historical School & Museum commemorating Aaron Fisher.
More details to come!
