Saying thank you from one hero to another, the Wisconsin VFW honored a Greendale fire chief for his service to his community, including one of his own firefighters. In February, Greendale Fire Lieutenant Mike Schmitt was among the crews rushing to a house fire in Muskego. He'd learn the fire was at his home. Since then, his chief, Kenten Kais, has worked diligently to help his family rise from the ashes, including an assist from a high school student. "Just a little extra special thank you for people that have done great things in the community," said Michele Rathke Wisconsin VFW state commander. "He's been able to help raise so much money for the Schmitt family, it's unbelievable," said Morgan. "I cannot believe how dedicated he is to the Greendale community and beyond."
