The members of the Door County Veterans Service Council would like to thank everyone that helped with the Sturgeon Bay Memorial Day ceremony – including Staff Sergeant Jared Spude for speaking, Pastor Sauer, Andy Anderson and Mary Nickel for sounding taps, the Peninsula Symphonic Band, Dave Tarmann for his hard work with all the chairs, Ed Evenson for pressing the United States and Wisconsin flags, the County of Door, the City of Sturgeon Bay, the media for all of the coverage before and after Memorial Day, and all of the volunteers that helped to honor our fallen comrades.
We would also like to thank the hundreds of people that turned out to attend the ceremony. Most of all, we would like to thank the family and friends of the men whose names are engraved on the Door County Veterans Memorial – thank you for your sacrifice. They will not be forgotten.
Joe Heilman, Chairman, Door County Veterans Service Council
