MY WISCONSIN STORY
Our residents are some of the happiest and most ambitious people in the nation—but don’t just take our word for it. Take theirs.
"Without a doubt, Wisconsin has a quality of life that is second to none, particularly here in the La Crosse area. And there’s a culture of deep appreciation for our veterans here in the Upper Midwest; we know and honor their sacrifice, and we give our service members the respect they’ve earned. So, the culture and quality of life are big reasons this is a great place to make a home for our service members and veterans."View All Stories
