She stands next to the flagpole at The Highground, and she is one of the first memorials in the United States to pay tribute specifically to women veterans.  The statue’s name is “The Nurse”, and she was originally submitted by Roger Brodin in a competition in Washington D.C.  When the statue did not win that competition, The Wisconsin chapters of The Vietnam Veterans of America purchased her for The Highground.  She is three feet tall and made of granite.

Above is a close up of the plaques that are under the statue.

We hope you get a chance to stop in and see her in person.

Thank you for stopping by!
