The Maine thing

A must read! (Christian Science Monitor)
How Mainers greet troops: hugs, fudge and 41 cellphones

The Maine Troop Greeters, a community group has gathered at Bangor International Airport since May 2003. The group has tallied over 1,400 flights, filled with about 260,000 traveling military personnel. A truly inspiring story--I dare you not to cry.

That is very very sweet.

P.S. I didn't cry.
