Woodruff veterans to be honored with stone placement ceremony
Krause, Ebeling honored by local VVA

Saturday, Aug. 2, a stone placement ceremony will be held at The Highground Veterans Memorial Park near Neillsville.

Friends and family are expected to attend the ceremony in honor of Larry Ebeling and Gary Kraus, both of Woodruff.

Sponsored by the Minocqua Vietnam Veterans Association Chapter 256, the stone in honor of the two Woodruff veterans will be inscribed as follows:


Minocqua VVA Honors

Gary Krause Army VN

Larry Ebeling 196LIB


Those attending are reminded to bring lawn chairs to make the wait more comfortable. 

The ceremony will begin with the ringing of the Liberty Bell. Colors will be presented and a volunteer will lead those in attendance in the Pledge of Allegiance.

After earth from the previous legacy stone ceremony is mixed with the earth from the day’s ceremony, each family will place their stone.

Following the placement, everyone will move onto the plaza to form a circle. Those attending will be encouraged to share their thoughts with the group.

The ceremony is expected to last up to two hours.

The Highground in Neillsville is a 155-acre manned veterans memorial park that pays tribute to the dead, and honors the survivors, their service and their sacrifices.

The park includes tributes to veterans of WWI, WWII, Korea and Vietnam as well as the National Native American Vietnam Memorial, a Meditation Garden, a handicap accessible treehouse, an exact replica of the Liberty Bell, Effigy Mound, a learning center (with a library) and four miles of hiking trails.
