We honor you



Ken Marston, far right, of American Legion Post 35, prepares to toss a wreath from the public boat launch at South Portland’s Bug Light Park, Monday, May 30, as members of VFW Post 832 and American Legion Post 35 — including, from left, Ted Cook, Kevin Fleming, Guy Linscott, Paul Neal, and Wes Splettstoesser — pay respect to their fallen comrades. Although inclement weather forced cancellation of the city’s Memorial Day parade, and kept the band and honor guard from the wreath service, the veterans refused to let the rains ruin their annual call to duty.
