This week, I was honored to attend the rededication of Red Arrow Park in Manitowoc. The rededication was led by my friend, Sgt. Maj. Ed Hansen (pictured below), who wanted to honor our local veterans from all branches and eras of service.

The Red Arrow Division, after which the park is named, turned 100 years old just yesterday. This division was well-known for its strength and stamina in both of the World Wars, and was comprised of National Guard members from Wisconsin and Michigan.

This park and the restored memorial reminds us all not to forget the men and women who have served our nation. While I know we all endeavor to remember and express our gratitude to our veterans every day, we can all use the reminder. I'm so thankful to Ed and all the other veterans and community members who worked so hard to restore and improve this park. If you haven't read the full story, I'd encourage you to do so here.

God bless,

Representative Paul Tittl
