Lance Sijan: A Hero Remembered

WTMJ Cares

A ten year quest came to a fitting, somber and inspiring conclusion Friday morning at Mitchell International Airport at the dedication of the Lance Sijan Memorial.

The Medal of Honor recipient's plaza features an F-4 fighter jet and plaques that tell his story, one you heard this past month as part of our WTMJ Cares campaign that raised more than $35,000 to complete the effort.  

During a two-hour Memorial Day special, Wisconsin’s Morning News host Gene Mueller looked back at the life and times of Lance and the journey to complete the memorial.
