FORT KENT, ME: Martin-Klein American Legion Post 133 is having a Vietnam Veterans Welcome Back & Appreciation Event on November 5 at 6pm. The event will be held at the Fort Kent Knights of Columbus hall and we received “Official Approval” for the Maine State Select Honor Guard to participate and fire the Ceremonial Howitzer in honor of the nearly 58,000 Americans who never returned from Vietnam. It is anticipated that 21 rounds will be fired so all in Fort Kent will surely notice the presence of the howitzer.
First Lady Mrs. Ann LePage & LTC Peter Ogden will present certificates from the State of Maine, Bugles Across America will provide live Taps after the gun salute and the Fort Kent Boy Scouts will post the Colors and lead the Pledge of Allegiance.
For more information please contact Duane Belanger, Commander of Martin-Klein American Legion Post 133 at (207) 951-2874 or email at email@example.com
