Representative Mike Gallagher helped launch NEW Battalion in 2017 and that model may be coming to Door County. Currently visiting different locations across Sturgeon Bay is a one-of-a-kind patriotic Lambeau Field print with a winner announced at the Salute to Veterans dinner November 9th. Facilitator Bill Suave hopes for $10,000 to be generated by the framed print through a raffle with the proceeds going to the new organization.
NEW Battalion's pilot program launched in Brown County named Bravo Company. In Door County, enrollment in the VFW and American Veterans is declining precipitously due to older demographics. The hope is a Door County spin-off organization of NEW Battalion can reinvigorate the local veteran community and reach veterans the other organizations cannot.
