Since our establishment in 2019, Article 15 Bar & Grill has been proud to be veteran-owned and operated. Whether it’s one of our Marine Corps Birthday Parties or Veterans Dinners, our business continues to host events in celebration and commemoration of our armed forces. Though we are based out of Pound in Marinette County, we are not the only of our kind, as there are numerous veteran-owned businesses throughout the state of Wisconsin. In today’s blog, we’ll be taking a closer look at the great veteran-owned businesses that Wisconsin has to offer.

Never Forgotten Honor Flight
Based in Wasau, Never Forgotten Honor Flight is a non-profit company with a simple purpose: to fly veterans who served in the World War II, the Korean War, and Vietnam War eras to Washington D.C. to visit the memorials rectified in their honor. These trips, which take place in April, May, September, and October of every year, provide a sense of “closure, gratitude & respect” to veterans, in addition to being free of charge.
Beginning its operations in 2005, the organization has since grown in size, flying more veterans than any other state in 2018. Flights have been delayed for the time being due to COVID-19, but the company expects to resume flights in Spring 2022, according to their official website.

Cream City Charity, Inc.
Another non-profit organization, Cream City’s work brings us to the Greater Milwaukee area, where it has a simple objective: to provide new or gently-used sports equipment for underprivileged youth. “Every kid, every sport”, affirms their official slogan.
“Cream City Charity will continually endeavor to be decent and moral stewards of the community” reads a statement on their website. “[Our goal is] to positively impact our youth and their families while exercising principled governance consistent with our mission.”
A certified veteran-owned business, Cream City Charity is the product of Jeff and Helen Paige, who have also included the children of deployed military personnel in their mission to provide kids with adequate sports equipment.
