Freeport Flag Ladies

Picture 67

“As the Freeport Flag Ladies we make the long drive to Bangor to join the Maine Troop Greeters at Bangor International Airport and to Pease International in New Hampshire to meet the troop flights whenever possible. Depending upon weather and construction it takes between two and three hours each way. We have greeted thousands of soldiers from all over this great nation who were being deployed or returning home after long deployments.”

Our mission is non-political. It is solely an act of love, gratitude and appreciation for the great sacrifices the men and women of the military have given to this nation throughout the ages. We honor and salute the heroes of the first line of defense at home – our fire, police and rescue workers as well as the men and women in the military. We applaud the diversity of this country and we are proud to call ourselves Americans.
