BANGOR – The Maine Troop Greeters have reached an enormous milestone.
The group of volunteers has now welcomed 1.5 million troops at the Bangor Airport.
The group recently announced the achievement on their Facebook page.
The Troop Greeters make it their mission to show up at the airport at all hours of the night, rain or shine, just to say thank you and to give soldiers a warm welcome when they come back from service.
They are also known throughout the world as ambassadors of good will.
