Maine Pays Tribute to Veterans
Maine's Vote in Honor of a Veteran program was created by former Secretary of State Dan A. Gwadosky as a “Promote the Vote” initiative for the 2000 General Election. Because of the program's popularity, as well as the events of September 11, 2001 and their aftermath, the program continues. It offers two unique ways for individuals to recognize the military service of a friend of relative.
The Book: Maine Remembers Those Who Served is a collection of tributes to veterans. Covering over 250 years, the book chronicles the contributions of servicemen and women in all branches of the military, celebrates their selfless dedication and commitment to military service, and honors the legacy of their defense of democracy.
Now available online, Maine Remembers Those Who Served serves as a special way to honor a veteran. The collection shows appreciation for all who helped preserve our freedoms, including our right to vote. It is our way of saying “thank you.” New tributes can now be added to the book's online version.
