NOW: ’Milwaukee Vets Week’ kicks off events honoring our heroes

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Veterans Day is one week away -- Nov. 11 -- but in Milwaukee, military men and women get more than just one day. 

"Milwaukee Vets Week" kicked off on Monday, Nov. 4 -- it's a series of events honoring the service of veterans.

Monday was a luncheon celebrating vets in the workforce. It was held at the Harley-Davidson Museum and not only were veterans honored but a salute was given to companies that hire them. 

"We're recognizing employers like Froedtert Health, like Kohler, organizations like Baird that have really gone above and beyond, whether it's supporting service members who are serving in the military and happen to deploy overseas," said Saul Newton, Veterans Chamber of Commerce.
