MADISON — Gov. Tony Evers today ordered the flags of the United States and the State of Wisconsin to be flown at half-staff as a mark of respect for Wisconsin Department of Military Affairs employee Nicholas Janz.
On July 1, 2019, Nicholas Janz, a facility maintenance specialist at the Volk Field Combat Readiness Training Center, Camp Douglas, Wisconsin, tragically died while performing his duties at the base. The order is effective beginning at sunrise and ending at sunset on the day of interment.
“Nicholas Janz was a diligent and dedicated Department of Military Affairs employee but also a devoted husband and father, loving son and brother, and a loyal friend to many,” said Gov. Evers. “The people of Wisconsin, his family and community will remember his legacy.”
