Update: I posted a few photos from today’s event above. For more, check out my Facebook page.
Veterans Day is Wednesday, and I encourage you to attend the South Milwaukee Veterans’ Council ceremony and honor those who have served.
The event begins at 10:45 a.m. with a light march from American Legion Post #27 to the South Milwaukee War Memorial on 10th Avenue. A brief ceremony begins at 11 a.m. at the memorial, featuring guest speaker Air Force Reserve Major (Ret.) Jean Marie Pyzyk and the reading of the names on the memorial.
Lunch will be served at noon at the Legion post.
I offer a sincere thanks for everyone who makes this event possible — and to all of our veterans. I will never take for granted their service and what it meant in protecting our freedom and way of life.
