Patriot Day 2018 and each year since 2001, the Tomahawk community has remembered the horrors of 9/11. Emergency services, fi re department representatives, law enforcement and the military held a special ceremony Sunday at Tomahawks Veterans Memorial Park, in anticipation of the actual observance today (Sept. 11). Among the speakers was Colonel Paul Russell, retired commander of the 64th Troop Command of the Wisconsin Army National Guard. Russell was deployed to Afghanistan as part of Operation Enduring Freedom, which began one month after the events of Sept. 11, 2001. Other speakers Sunday included Mike Caylor, representing dispatchers; Nokomis Fire Chief Don Richert, representing the EMS community; Tomahawk Fire Department Lt. Kevin Krueger, also of Generations Funeral Home, talking about responders and loss; and Pastor Larry Mathein, with the invocation and benediction.
