The literal sign of thanks posted at the north side of the Indiana State Fair track stands two stories tall and maybe 50 feet. wide - each letter of the message "Thank you, Indiana" is constructed of more than 5,000 Indiana National Guard uniform name tapes. Nestled at the bottom left side of the sign is a white flag constructed of 200+ white name tapes - the fallen. The soldiers welcome all Hoosiers to bring a memento or token to leave at the display.
