MACHIAS – The Maine Veterans Home in Machias makes sure their residents feel special by getting to know their patients, asking them their stories and displaying them in their rooms for everyone to see.
The activities director has been submitting these stories to the “Remember Me Photography Project”. One of their projects and patient of the home, Fred Lutz Junior, won!
When asked about his life, Fred seemed rather humble about his past saying “My story is the same story that many many hundreds of thousands of people would have for their own life, nothing spectacular. Gee, it was just a normal life as far as i can see.”
But that couldn’t be further from the truth. Fred will be receiving an award in Augusta on Tuesday for his life as an enlisted man and an officer. He dropped out of school and dedicated his entire life to our country.
