The Ho-Chunk WWI Veteran’s Memorial stands in front of the Ho-Chunk Gaming Casino. It was erected by the Andrew Blackhawk American Legion Post 129.

There is an inscription on the memorial which reads: “Twenty-six Wisconsin Winnebago men volunteered for the First World War in the 128th Infantry, Company D, 32nd Red Arrow Division, Mauston, Wisconsin. The fine example set by these men is worth exceptional praise because they were not even considered full-fledged citizens of this country at the time of their military service.

Foster DeCorah and Robert DeCorah gave their lives on the battlefield on August 5, 1918. Their deaths were not in vain. This nation exists today only because of the willingness of these brave men to preserve and protect their country by giving their lives in its defense. Their unselfish dedication to the preservation of freedom was in keeping with the highest traditions of Wisconsin Winnebago warriors and the United States Military Service.

In remembrance and with the utmost gratitude this memorial is humbly dedicated to the following Wisconsin Winnebago Veterans of World War I.

Robert Bigthunder, James Haynka, Andrew Blackhawk, Sam Little Soldier, James Brown, Nett Longtail, Allen DeCorah, Dewey Mike, Arthur DeCorah, George Miner, Foster DeCorah (Killed In Action), John Miner, Henry DeCorah, William Miner, Robert DeCorah (Killed In Action), Mike Standing Water, Russius DeCorah, Jesse Thompson, William DeCorah, Sam Thundercloud, Nelson B. De-LaRonde, Archie WhiteEagle, Andrew Funmaker, John WhiteEagle, James Greengrass, Martin WhiteBear, and Lyle Wright.”
