Maine Troop Greeters

DSCF4782

Bangor International Airport is a major refueling point for a great many military flights both homecoming and outgoing. Scheduled flights are greeted by the Maine Troop Greeters. The Flag Ladies are members of the Troop Greeters and make the two hours trip from Freeport to Bangor as often as possible to greet the deploying soldiers and take pictures so cherished by their families.

The troop Greeters are composed of many veterans from all the conflicts from WWll to Desert Storm as well as patriotic Americans of all ages and all walks of life. The soldiers come down the ramp and are greeted by applause, handshakes, hugs and words of gratitude.

Below are pictures of some of the greeters so you might see the faces of some of these loyal men, women and children.
