The Highground honors all who have served in times of conflict and in times of peace. All veterans of any era have, at one point in their life, wrote a blank check made payable to ‘The United States if America,’ for an amount up to and including their life.
All names from Korea to present are read at The Highground, out loud with the toll of the replica Liberty Bell. (20,000+ individual names are read on Memorial Day and Veterans Day.) At several events a representative group of names are read with those attending answering “Present” on their behalf. The Highground does not let our fallen go in silence. Please see this page for more information.
