From the Maine National Guard Facebook page: "The families of fallen service members join the members of the Maine Army National Guard and Maine Air National Guard to honor fallen service members by marching in the 26.2 mile Maine Marathon Tribute march Sunday, October 4, 2015.
The march follows the Maine Marathon race course that starts on Back Bay in Portland and stretches into Yarmouth and back. It started 10 years ago to pay tribute to the families of the fallen. Marchers carried the bib number '95' on their rucksacks to honor the number of service members with connections to Maine who have lost their lives in combat since the beginning of the war on terror in 2001."
MENG and Pejepscot Historical Society Flag Ceremony
From the Maine National Guard Facebook page: "In a formal ceremony on September 16th, 2015 at the Cultural Building in Augusta, the Maine State Select Honor Guard oversaw a replica 1860 garrison flag returned to its owner, the Pejepscot Historical Society. The ceremony symbolized the return 150 years ago of Maine soldiers from the Civil War, when they would present their colors to the Adjutant General. The flag was commissioned to honor Joshua Chamberlain's posting of it in his Brunswick residence. The event was to pay proper respect to the flag, and to serve as a reminder that when Maine soldiers came home, it was a formal occasion. The Hall of Flags in the Capitol began as a result of this kind of ceremony (U.S. Army National Guard photo by SFC Pete Morrison)."
