Greeting the Troops at Portsmouth, NH
Little House on Unaka | October 7, 2009 | don-o

I seem to recall FReepers posting about gatherings to greet the troops. Well, my son, Ben, just texted me that they had stopped there and had a ceremony as they were refueling and changing crew.

Wondering if any Freepers might have been there and maybe took pictures.

Ben said it was pretty nice; and that means (coming from him) it must have been pretty awesome!

My son went through Bangor, ME, and we have pictures. It is a wonderful thing those people do, greeting the flights at all hours of the day and night.

Did you search the city and troops or some such combination?

You may want to go there and look around and then post the request for pics on that thread.
