GREEN BAY (WKOW)-- A Wisconsin company is recognizing the five U.S. Service members killed in Chattanooga, Tennessee two weeks ago.

Lamar Advertising is posting patriotic messages on its 25 billboards in northeast Wisconsin.

One has four dress blues covers and a lone Dixie cup,  representing the four Marines and one Navy sailor who died.

"It's kind of our symbolic way of lowering our flag to half mast and keeping the attention on the matter," says General Manager Don Snyder.

A second message shows American flags surrounding the Statue of Liberty with the phrase #ChattanoogaStrong.

Lamar plans to keep the memorials going for another week or two.
