Chairman Note

I am pleased to volunteer and serve as President of this dedicated Board of Directors. As a veteran from the Vietnam War who lost classmates and close friends I understand why we need a monument that honors the veterans who gave the ultimate sacrifice. Our goal is to provide a beautiful monument to recognize all Sheboygan County Veterans who have served in our military.
Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. Sheboygan County proudly remembers our veterans at this beautiful memorial. Pictures just don’t do it justice and I hope that very soon you will have the opportunity to visit this hallowed ground and see for yourself.

George is a member of VFW Post 9156, Sheboygan County Marine Corps League Detachment #1446 and American Legion Post 555. He believes that it is very important that men and women that have served our country, past and present, be recognized for the unselfish commitment they made to this country.
