Location: ARMORY PARK - 1225 E. Henry Clay & Ardmore, Whitefish Bay, WI
The 2nd Annual Memorial Day Ceremony will be an opportunity for Veterans to connect with one another and for the Whitefish Bay to honor our country’s fallen service members.
This 45-minute event will give Whitefish Bay families a way to teach children the meaning behind Memorial Day and to witness traditional military customs.
This year’s keynote speaker will be Mr. Kevin Nicholson, a combat veteran with the United States Marine Corps that served in Iraq and Afghanistan. Mr. Nicholson was awarded the Bronze Star, cited by Task Force Commander as the “best Counter-Improvised Explosive Device (IED) Team Leader in Afghanistan” for work in leading a highly specialized 50-man team in responding to over 100 IED detonations and discoveries over six months.
