MFD Honor Guard personnel will call attention and present arms for the salute

the names of the 343 New York Firefighters who lost their lives, passing the list
to department members present so all can take part in the reading.
An additional event will take place in the evening at Miller Park starting at
4:00 p.m. This event includes ladder trucks from the Milwaukee and
Wauwatosa Fire Departments to display a large American Flag. There will be a
343 helmet display outside the stadium at the home plate entrance with the

Anthem as the Honor Guard presents the colors at the 6:40 p.m. Brewer game.
