New National Veterans Burial Ground In Cassian Township ​​​

In August of 2012, the Veterans Ceremony - U.G.C. made an inquiry to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs in regards to their new program  "VA Expanding Burial
Options in Rural Areas"

The township of Cassian's Board members were contacted to see if this  is something that they would be interested in doing. The Board agreed unanimously, and the process  began, putting  officials  together, and as of October 2015 the new "National Veterans Burial Ground"  has been established in Cassian, (Harshaw) across from the Veterans Memorial in Union Grove Cemetery.  Construction phase pending....

This  National Veterans Burial Ground will serve over 24300  veterans in the northern regional service area.

Veterans Ceremony-U.G.C. members are very proud in initiating this very important addition to the northwoods of Wisconsin for it's veterans and family.
Update : February 2018
The current status of new cemetery is moving into it's final phases. Meetings will be taking place to discuss  & finalize type of construction for this site. Property will start to be worked on - spring / summer, it is reported.
