THE MAINE TROOP GREETERS & MUSEUM
The Maine Troop Greeters & Museum is a non-profit group of veterans and men, women and children volunteers who support soldiers serving overseas by greeting troops who arrive at Bangor International Airport. Maine Troop Greeters began in May of 2003 and have greeted over 7,600 flights with more than 1,500,000 service members and 446 military dogs. It is their pledge that as long as there are U.S. Armed Forces serving overseas, they will be there to greet them. Monetary donations given to the Maine Troop Greeters & Museum are used to pay for food, amenities, postage for the troops and maintaining the Maine Troop Greeter Museum at the airport. Approximately 97% of all monetary donations go to directly to hosting the troops during their stay at the Bangor International Airport. They offer free cell phones to call a loved one, a snack to keep them going, and handshakes to let them know that they care. When a handshake won't do, some military men and women will reach out and hug the person who came by with a warm welcome.
I’ll be riding my motorcycle with the Stars and Stripes flowing freely and proudly across the Heartland of the United Stated from the Canadian/US border International Peace Gardens (no coincidence there) to the Mexico Border and then on to the Memorial Day Motorcycle Rally in Red River, New Mexico. The purpose is to raise awareness of the sacrifices our soldiers are enduring and to raise operating funds for the Maine Troop Greeters & Museum. I will be funding 100% of my travel costs. That means 97% of your Tax-Deductible Donation (minus 3% transaction fees) will be sent directly to the Maine Troop Greeters & Museum. Any amount is plenty whether your donation is $5 or much more.
Caring for the soldiers can be emotionally, physically and financially draining. Show your support for soldiers and their families. Now is the time to care for the “Caretakers”, let’s help out!
