Update: More pictures from the event on my Facebook page.
Tonight, we will honor a true American hero, Gary Wetzel, at the 128th Air Refueling Wing Civic Dinner Dance.
With that in mind, I am proud to declare May 18, 2017, as Gary Wetzel Day in the City of South Milwaukee.
Please join me in thanking this incredible man for his service, and wishing him well in his continued recovery from his motorcycle accident last summer.
The same courage, grit and determination he displayed in Vietnam in support of his country is on display now. We celebrate that tonight, and every day.
