The small midwestern town of Ladysmith, Wisconsin lost (3) three of her sons within the span of 6 months in 2006. Additional losses in Rusk County reminded us all of the sacrifices made by our nations finest. The members of Battle Cross unanimously decided to set the first memorial provided by Battle Cross in Ladysmith, Wisconsin. An area of land located in Memorial Park has been donated by the town to established a lasting memorial to all of her sons who have given their lives for freedom.
