From the Maine Troop Greeters website:
Welcome to the official website of The Maine Troop Greeters of Bangor, Maine.We are a non-profit group of veterans and men and women supporting our armed forces serving overseas by greeting troops who arrive at Bangor International Airport.So ... as you can imagine, lots of Family members eagerly check the site to see if their servicemember has a photo there. In the three deployments we've experienced since they began this program, my honey has been posted at least once each time. And each time, it becomes a photo I treasure. Check out some of the latest great works from these fine Americans!
Day or night, rain or shine,it is our commitment to welcome each troop home from war and give a proper send off to each of the young men and women heading overseas. We accomplish this by being here to offer free cell phones to call a loved one, a snack to keep them going, and handshakes to let them know we care.
Since we began greeting flights in May of 2003, the Maine Troop Greeters have greeted over 5800 flights with more than 1,190,000 service members and 296 military dogs. And it is our pledge that as long as there are U.S. armed forces serving overseas we will be here to greet them.
|Love this Soldier!|
|Yep, I even love the ones where I can only see a piece of the side of his head. :)|
