Maine XV

Just a couple of miles south of Augusta is the town of Hallowell. Located in Kennebec County the town celebrated their 250th anniversary in 2012.

To mark the occasion they built this memorial to all vets. It lists names all the way back to the Spanish American War.

Our brothers and sisters are remembered and honored on the back. There is no key to explain the asterisk next to a few of the names, but it is easy to assume that this denotes KIA. I note only one name from 'Nam.

As you can see, much space is left for the inevitable next engagement, wherever and whenever that may be.

Located near the intersection of Central and 2nd Streets in a local cemetery.

Next time, on the 11th we will return to Maryland, so, as always, join me there at 9:00am.
