2014 Goals
PTSD Information

 

PTSD: Post Traumatic Stress Disorder—affects many of the veterans today. A “magic” number we think of at The Highground is twenty.  For every person killed in the current war, there are twenty that come back home suffering from PTSD.  They are MIA (Missing in America). Missing an arm, a leg, body part or part of their psyche, they no longer are the same person as before they went to war.

The Highground Gift Shop and Information Center has three wonderful books that are given to those who visit that would benefit from this information.  They are:

Souled Out: A Memoir of War and Inner Peace by Michael S. Orban

Courage After Fire by Keith Armstrong; Suzanne Best; Paula Domenici

Tears of A Warrior by Janet J. Seahorn and E. Anthony Seahorn

If you, or someone you know, may be suffering from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) or if you are not sure if you have this, please come to The Highground to get a book and compare your story to the author’s story. For more assistance, you can also call on the Tomah VA’s program call at 608-372-1651.

Thank you Highground

Dear Veterans, Please accept our donation from the members of the Disabled American Veterans Auxiliary Unit 17 in Oshkosh, WI. The Highground stands as a very visible and lasting tribute to our veterans. The special events, educational mission and celebration of lives given in sacrifice are constant reminders that our veterans are not forgotten. Thank you for your commitment and dedication to a very worthwhile and noble cause. In patriotism and peace, Dar Schuff, Treasurer DAVA Unit 17

Legacy Stones are 12" x 12" x 2" grey granite squares that represent one of the main means for meeting the operating and maintainence costs of The Highground Veterans Memorial Park.  For a $435 donation, families and organizations may place a stone on the West Walkway, contribute material toThe Registry, and participate in the 90- minute ceremony.  We call Legacy Stones living tributes because they are meant to honor special people in our lives including veterans and nonveterans, living or passed.
