Organizers hope Our Fallen of Wisconsin exhibit helps local memorial

Posted:

"Our Fallen of Wisconsin"  is an exhibit of the 132 Wisconsin men and women who have died in the War on Terror. The display is at the Patriot Center in Rothschild and runs through Sunday.

Organizers hope it will draw attention to the fundraising efforts underway to build a Gold Star Mothers Memorial in Rothschild. Gold Star mothers are women who have lost sons or daughters in the service.

An artists drawing of the memorial is on display at the Patriot Center.

Organizers say they need an additional $15,000 to make the memorial a reality. They are also hoping to buy a statue of a lone woman. That will cost an additional $75,000.

The memorial would be built in Veterans Memorial Park in Rothschild.
