    One Million since 2003

    Great article from Bangor, Maine about the folks who have been greeting the troops since 2003. On Monday morning, just before 1am, they greeted #1,000,000.

    Some were on their way over; others coming home. They went through Bangor one way or another.

    I would love to see that number go to zero.
