Pence first went to Southside Elementary School in Columbus, Indiana where he signed a famous guitar. The guitar has also been signed by Hoosiers Dan Quayle, Tony Stewart, Florence Henderson and others.
The vice president then went to Camp Atterbury, where he spoke to members of the Indiana National Guard. The guardsmen are about to be sent to Kuwait.
In his last public event of the day, Pence visited the Neurodiagnostic Institute. The institute is a state mental health facility where he briefly discussed gun violence.
"We also believe — the president and I — believe strongly that part of the answer is a renewed commitment to mental health in the United States," Pence said. "And I'm incredibly proud that Indiana is leading the way."
Vice President Pence did not take questions from reporters at any point throughout the day.
