Welcome to the Maine Troop Greeters
Welcome to the official website of The Maine Troop Greeters of Bangor, Maine.We are a non-profit group of veterans and men and women supporting our armed forces serving overseas by greeting troops who arrive at Bangor International Airport.
Day or night, rain or shine,it is our commitment to welcome each troop home from war and give a proper send off to each of the young men and women heading overseas. We accomplish this by being here to offer free cell phones to call a loved one, a snack to keep them going, and handshakes to let them know we care.
The Maine Troop Greeters honored those who served and who are serving from all branches of the military on Armed Forces Day, May 18, 2013 and also celebrated our 10 year anniversary. Please click here to see the pictures. (Note- click first small icon above pictures to view as slideshow)
The mission of the Maine Troop Greeters is to express the nation's gratitude and appreciation to the troops, for those going overseas for a safe return and for those returning for a joyful homecoming and to make their (hopefully brief) stay in Bangor as comfortable and pleasant as possible.
