NEILLSVILLE (WAOW) -- The High Ground will host an exhibit featuring Vietnam photos by Robert Ellison.

Ellison was a civilian photographer in Vietnam. He spent several years there and captured many different images. Some have been published in magazines such as Ebony and Jet. Ellison also had a cover and eight pages in Newsweek about the Siege of Khe Sanh.

The photographs will be displayed in The High Ground Learning Center through the month of February.

Organizers feel it is a great opportunity to learn about the sacrifices made by U.S. Veterans.

"People need to know the real story. There is so much that people don't know, and I just feel that needs to come out," Learning Center Coordinator June Berg said. "This is a great place for that to come out."

The organization plans to host a World War II exhibit next.
