Maine VII

Often, as I drive throughout the country, I come across some unexpected memorials. This was the case, recently, as I drove through Maine. In the town of Gardiner, in a small city park stood this lone tribute to many from the area lost in our many wars.

Adjacent to a nice gazebo and under the watch of the U.S. and POW/MIA flags this single stone lists the names of many.

Those of our brothers from 'Nam, ten in all, are not forgotten.

This bench was donated by the Cole Transportation Museum (Bangor) which is the home to a large memorial honoring all from Maine. You can see it elsewhere on this site.

This memorial may be found in the park at Lincoln Street and Washington Avenue.

Next time, on the 15th, we return to Maryland, so join me there at 9:00am.
