WWII Veteran, Silver Star and Purple Heart recipient, Art Schladerman will also receive a special recognition. On D-Day, June 6, 1944, Schladerman and his unit landed at Omaha Beach. Schladerman received the Silver Star for heroism when he carried a wounded comrade back to Allied lines after their tank destroyer was blown up near Saint-Malo in 1944.

“Join me as we salute the American Flag which remains the most recognized symbol of democracy in the world,” said Councilmember von Reichbauer. “By honoring it, along with those who have served and are currently serving we celebrate their dedication and commitment to our country’s freedom.”
