Tributes at The Highground

It is the mission of The Highground to honor Veterans and their families and to educate others about the cost of things – the human cost. It is the vision of The Highground to honor human courage and sacrifice wherever it is displayed without denying or glorifying the pain and suffering of war or of life. It is important to recognize that The Highground is not a war memorial. It is a Veteran’s Memorial Park that pays tribute to the dead, and honors the survivors, their service, and their sacrifices. It also pays tribute to the people who supported them when they were away and upon their return. The Highground currently has 17 tributes located within it’s park, and another 5 miles of trails to take some time and reflect along. Please view any one of the tributes located below.
