Alcami joined the nation in remembering and honoring fallen members of the U.S. Armed Forces this Memorial Day with a donation to the Purple Heart Foundation and a strong public showing of support for longtime Alcami employee and Vietnam veteran, Herman Anthony.
In a special tribute to the brave men and women who sacrificed their lives in service to our country, Anthony was invited by the Milwaukee Brewers to participate in a May 26 ceremony on the Miller Park playing field during the national anthem. A group of 50 Alcami employees and their families – many of them military veterans themselves – surprised Anthony at the game with a salute, and presented him with a check to the Purple Heart Foundation in his name.
The recognition would be the second time he was honored by Alcami and the Brewers. In November 2018, Anthony embarked on an Honor Flight to Washington, D.C., accompanied by Milwaukee Brewers all-star relief pitcher, Corey Knebel. He received a hero’s welcome from Alcami colleagues, friends, family, and the general public upon his triumphant return to the Milwaukee airport.
Alcami facilities are closed every Memorial Day to pay silent homage to our deceased veterans and show gratitude for their ultimate sacrifices. #RememberOurFallen
