Milwaukee County War Memorial

Donor Spotlight: Michael W. Grebe

It would be difficult to find someone in the Milwaukee region who isn’t familiar with Michael Grebe either through his position as CEO of the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation, his extensive work with the Republican Party, or as CEO of Foley & Lardner.

Throughout his impressive career, Michael has always been a strong advocate for veterans and a longtime supporter of the War Memorial Center.  His dedication to veterans stems from his own service in Vietnam as a member of the US Army where he was awarded the Combat Infantryman Badge and two Bronze Stars.  You can hear about Michael’s experiences in Vietnam in his interview for our Veterans Story Project below.

This past June, Michael retired as CEO of the Bradley Foundation, a position he held since 2002.  With deep respect for the significant impact of Michael’s support for the War Memorial Center and our veterans, the War Memorial Center Board of Directors voted to award the first War Memorial Center Patriot Award to Michael Grebe.

Congratulations Michael on this well-deserved recognition and best wishes for your next chapter — thank you from all of us!

Michael will receive his award at the LZ War Memorial Center event on August 4, 2016 (Michael is one of our valued honorary planning committee members!).  We hope you can join us on August 4th!
