“I love living in Central Wisconsin as a veteran because of the opportunity, space, and people. Central Wisconsin is such an amazing place to live, the natural beauty, great career opportunities, and the support provided to the veteran community is truly second to none. As a Marine Corps veteran who was stationed in Hawaii, Central Wisconsin, it's rich culture, outdoor lifestyle, and opportunity called me home and I call it paradise. As a veteran I appreciate living in Central Wisconsin because of the great quality of life, endless outdoor opportunities (the golf scene is 5 stars, plus the Ice Age Trail, fishing, hiking, state parks...) and the ability to connect with great career opportunities with a really low cost of living!”
