The event on Friday begins at 10:40 a.m. with a walk from the Van Eimeren-Kolonka American Legion Post #27 to the South Milwaukee War Memorial on 10th Avenue. A brief ceremony begins at 11 a.m. at the memorial. Lunch will be served afterwards 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.
