Holmen high school student heads effort to bring Vietnam Memorial to La Crosse

Holmen high school student heads...

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - A memorial dedicated to Vietnam veterans is coming to La Crosse thanks to a local high school student.

Holmen High School student Jordan Briskey is working with the La Crosse Park and Rec Department to bring his idea to the Veterans Freedom Park near French Island.

The sophomore began the project a year ago when he noticed there was no memorial to vets of the Vietnam war.

Briskey helped form a committee to make the memorial a reality after meetings with the Park and Rec Department and La Crosse businessman Don Weber... who is also a Vietnam veteran.

The committee is currently raising funds for the memorial.

You can make check donations out to the Vietnam Memorial and mail them to:
