Special Event Coming to The Highground in August
Monday, June 16th, 2014 -- 11:33 AM-2014 marks the 30th anniversary of The Highground Veterans Memorial Park in Neillsville.
What began as The Wisconsin Vietnam Veterans Memorial Project in 1984 has evolved and expanded to include tributes, education and support for veterans from WWII to the present day.
In August, The Highground will present its mission of Healing and Education in an event that has never happened before in the U.S. From August 13 ? 17, The Highground will host, during all four days, ?The Wall That Heals? Vietnam Memorial Wall; ?The Wall of Remembrance? memorial wall to those who were killed in the Global War on Terror conflicts beginning with The Gulf War and all civilians killed in the attacks of 9/11; and The Canadian Vietnam Memorial Wall.
These two memorial walls along with The Canadian Vietnam Memorial Wall will all be present at The Highground from Aug 13 ? 18th, the first time that all three walls have ever been exhibited together. On August 12th, all three walls will travel with a formal escort of over 100 motorcycles and other vehicles on a 187 mile procession to The Highground.
The public is invited to share in this momentous event by visiting the walls at The Highground during The Week of Honor & Remembrance August 13 ? 18.
