Wisconsin law enforcement officer Brent Kroll has created a community service event – On a Mission for Families – to show appreciation for the men and women of the United States armed forces for everythingÂ that they do. The event came about as Kroll’s project in the Landmark Education Self-Expression and Leadership Program, and is being held August 22, in Minooka Park, in Waukesha, Wisconsin, starting at 11am.
Kroll conceived ‘On a Mission for Families’ to not just thank service members, but also their families. â€œI have the utmost respect for men and women in military service,” said Kroll. “They have my gratitude and respect. Furthermore, I realize there are sacrifices made by the families back home.â€
The event is providing a fun day full of family activities outside in the park. Admission is free to military families – there is a $5 park entrance fee. Food and beverages are provided at no cost. Other free activities for families and children include games running all day, face painting, body art, balloon animals, and live music from 1-4.
