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 Major General Raymond A.

“Major General Matera served the state of Wisconsin and our country with distinction,” said Gov.

Major General Matera’s legacy of service will not be forgotten.”
