Our very own chairman of the board and decorated Vietnam veteran, Bill Raaths, was recently featured in a video for a Wisconsin Veterans Village Association campaign, promoting the creation of a first-of-its-kind Veterans Village in Northeast Wisconsin.
With the Fox Cities veteran population being 8.8%, which is higher than the national average, there is a great need for affordable housing and support for veterans in all stages of life in our area. When they return to civilian life, many veterans continue to face challenges.
The Veterans Village will provide veterans, and their families, affordable housing and support. This is a community for veterans to be part of throughout their lifespan, as they live among fellow veterans in a veteran-centric culture.
Great Northern’s Pat Lovesee, supply chain director and U.S. Army combat veteran, sits on the Veterans Village Campaign Leadership Cabinet.
Great Northern values our veterans and is proud to be a financial supporter of the Wisconsin Veterans Village.
