Central Wisconsin pays tribute to it’s citizens who fought for the United States during the Korean War. Just 4 miles from the Holiday Inn Hotel & Convention Center, this is a stunning dedication and a wonderful place to find a moment’s peace. The Memorial is comprised of a set of statues as well as a set of Memorial Walls commemorating our fallen heros. There is also a small park with picnic tables and a beach.
Nestled on an island in Lake Pacawa, the Memorial pays tribute to those Wisconsinites that fought, died or those who are still listed as Missing in Action as a result of the Korean War.
Upon passing thru the gateway, there is a short walk up the “Isle of Honor” walkway to the Memorial. On a summer’s day, area youth can be seen fishing along the shoreline.
The Memorial Statuary are composed of five larger then life figures. The statues face east, because Korea is in the Far East, and in memory of all who lost their lives and are still missing in action.
