Six military branches represented at Miller Park

MILWAUKEE -- When it came to the Brewers honoring those who protect and serve the United States and its freedom, nobody was left out at Miller Park on Independence Day.

Six different branches of the military -- including the Wisconsin National Guard and Wisconsin Air National Guard -- were represented in simultaneous ceremonial first pitches before Wednesday's game. And when it came time for the national anthem, one flag was not enough.

Instead, members of the Army National Guard, the Navy, the Marines and the Coast Guard presented four U.S. Flags before Sgt. 1st Class Dennis Robinson of the United States Army sang the Star Spangled Banner.
