Memorial expansion drive opens

The Sheboygan County Veterans Memorial is in the unexpected need to expand and add another pillar to recognize Sheboygan County veterans that have served their country.

“In 2014 we recognized the 20th Anniversary of the Sheboygan County Veterans Memorial and to our surprise veterans and families that attended the event wanted their name or that of a friend or family member added to the wall,” stated Allen Nohl, President of the Sheboygan County Veterans Memorial Board. “The Memorial is supported by residents and businesses throughout the county with no government or veteran’s administration support, so we will need to ask for donations to afford the addition.”

Names are added to the Memorial in two ways. Those that were killed in action are inscribed in the marble at no cost. Veterans, family members or friends may add the name of someone that served in a conflict for $150, which covers the cost of inscription.

At the 20th Anniversary of the Memorial over 55 names of veterans were added from. This filled both the WWII and Vietnam War pillars and names are now being added on the “Those Who Served” wall which is rapidly being filled, bringing about the need for an additional wall.

The cost of adding a new marble wall comes in at $48,000. The Memorial Board is asking for donations from individuals and businesses throughout the county and state.

Donations can be made by contacting Allen Nohl at anohl@excel.net, by phone at 920-207- 1196, or on the Memorial website scvmemorial.org.

The Sheboygan County Veterans Memorial is a non-profit display administered by a Board of Directors of veterans.
