Honoring those who have served

Posted July 12, 2013, at 9:03 p.m.

Each Memorial Day the Martin-Klein American Legion Post No. 133 marks the graves of all 571 veterans in the greater Fort Kent area with a US Flag. They have undertaken a project to mark each grave with a Veteran Flag Holder. To date the Post has raised nearly 20% of the funds needed to mark all graves. The post would like to have all markers ordered and ready to place on graves by Veterans Day 2013. Anyone wishing to contribute to honor a veteran are asked to mail donations to:


Attn: Flag Holder Fund

411 West Main Street

Fort Kent, ME 04743

A donation of $50 will provide for the marking of the graves of 5 veterans. As always the Legion appreciates the public support of those who have served and look forward to achieving their goal of ensuring that all graves are marked properly.
