Marcia Mueller, sister of prominent alumnus Craig Mueller, recently donated a second flag to commemorate the events of September 11, 2001. The flags flew on Saturday, Sept. 11, 2010, from daybreak to sunset on the flagpoles at Lambeau Cottage.

In July of 2009, Marcia Mueller donated the original flag that shows the stars over the original Twin Towers of New York City.
The second flag was a gift to Craig Mueller from a friend who worked at the New York Police Department. The “Flag of Heroes” lists the names of all the rescue workers who gave their lives in 2001.
Craig Mueller, a 1971 graduate, made a $1 million gift
— the largest ever academic gift by an alumnus to UW-Green Bay — and many other contributions, to the University through the years. The nautical poles
located near Lambeau Cottage were installed in honor of Mueller, who spent the majority of his career as a commercial airline pilot and avid sailor. He suffered life-threatening injuries on a runway accident in 1998 that ended his piloting career but not his zest for life. He died in 2007 after battling cancer.
