“Veterans when they get out of the military are you know when they are not currently serving, we are a group of people that we like purpose and this is kind of reinforcing for us that hey you know there are still people here for you, there are still people looking out for you.” Thomas Hayden, DATA Entry Specialist, UMaine Vets Center
Tickets are available by the office at the Memorial Union. The pass can be used at The Bear’s Den located within the Memorial Union dining area.
