The Simplicity Show Ep.10: Veterans Day 2018

As a tribute to the Veterans on our team, in our families, and from our communities we're featuring just two of the places you can visit to pause, reflect, and give thanks for the men and women who've served our Country. 

The Highground in Neillsville and the Korean War Memorial in Plover both incorporate the natural beauty of Central Wisconsin and powerful imagery to ensure that the sacrfices of our Veterans will never be forgotten.

Below are some of the images from our visit to the Highground. Thank you to the staff, volunteers, and all those who support this amazing memorial.
