Its been a while since I have seen anything but just wanted anyone interested to know that on June 10, 2011 The 125th Maine Legislature passed in both Chambers HP 1177 requesting The President of the United States and the respective members of the US Congress as well as the Maine Congressional Delegation itself, to designate the Protectors and Defenders of the Northeastern Boundary of the United States and State of Maine as United States Veterans. If the Congress or President acts on this information, the Northern Maine Veteran's Cemetery Board will vote on including a fifth wall in the Veteran's cemetery at Caribou and the men who "walked the walk" up to the Aroostook will finally get the recognition they deserve for not only getting the northeastern boundary settled by all the way west to beyong Minnesota. The letters have been sent to Washington DC by Maine's Sec of State and now We need the help of all the other members of congress so if you felieve this is a designation long (191 years since Maine made the first request of the federal government to establish a secure border) over due please write you member of Congress-both chambers- to contact a Maine Representative (Rep. Michaud is actually on the House Veterans affairs committee)and ask how to co-sponsor or at least pledge to support this "no fiscal cost piece of legislation. Thanks Bertie
