MADISON — Gov. Tony Evers today ordered the flags of the United States and the State of Wisconsin to be flown at half-staff as a mark of respect for Major General Raymond A. Matera, a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps, U.S. Air Force, and U.S. Army. Major General Matera served as the Adjutant General for the State of Wisconsin and oversaw the federal and state missions of the Wisconsin Air and Army National Guards from 1979 to 1989. The order is effective beginning at sunrise on Friday, May 24, 2019, and ending at sunset on that date.
“Major General Matera served the state of Wisconsin and our country with distinction,” said Gov. Evers. “Our hearts go out to his family, friends, and fellow service members as they honor the life of such an exceptional member of our Armed Forces. Major General Matera’s legacy of service will not be forgotten.”
