Weir Cook has been dead a long time, since 1943, but a military veterans group wants to bring
his name back
to what is now Indianapolis International Airport.

The war heroâ??s name was on the airport from 1944, a year after he died in a plane crash, until the airport was given its current
name in 1976.

Yesterday, the Indianapolis City-County Council voted to recommend that the airport board add â??Col. Harvey Weir Cookâ?? to the
official name.

What do you think?
