Saturday was the Wreaths Across America & Gold Star Mothers Ceremony in Calais. Breakfast was served at Washington County Community College followed by the ceremony at the Ferry Point Bridge. Gold Star Mothers on both sides of the border exchanged wreaths, representing their loss of their loved ones. The United Veterans Honor Guard participated in the ceremony! 

I had the honor and privilege to present the Calais American Legion the Veterans’ Memorial Flag to Colonel Roger H. C. Donlon, the Vietnam’s First Medal of Honor Recipient in July 1964. With great astonishment Colonel Donlon presented me with the Medal of Honor coin!  This moment I will cherish for the rest of my life!
