In celebration of Veterans Day, the governor visited the Necedah Veterans Memorial Hall in Juneau County to sign Senate Bill 345, now 2021 Wisconsin Act 91, designating State Highway 21 between Sparta and Oshkosh as a Purple Heart Memorial Highway. Gov. Evers signed the bill honoring recipients of the Purple Heart medal surrounded by local veterans and elected leaders.
