As a veteran who transitioned from Active Duty to the Maine Army National Guard, I understand the challenges that arise when balancing military duty, work and family. Please know that no matter where you are in your transition ‚Äď or how long you’ve been out of the service – the Bureau’s goal is to support you by being a one-stop resource for all of your information needs and to offer exceptional advocacy for Maine‚Äôs veterans.

We are fortunate in Maine to have a rich tradition of military service. Over 300,000 Mainers have been affected by service, whether as a veteran, retiree, family member, Guard or Reserve, or active duty personnel. Many of our veterans have returned home to become community leaders and advocates for other veterans through the Maine Military and Community Network and other Veteran Councils.

Preserving the 65 Year History of Hunting Submarines
Poised just hundreds of feet from the icy North Atlantic, with a legacy of over 65 years of relentless vigilance, Naval Air Station Brunswick, Maine, carved a unique place in US and Naval history and played a critical role in maritime patrol aviation world-wide.  With important contributions during World War II, Vietnam and the Cold War, and with squadron deployments to Korea, the Far East, Europe, North Africa and the Middle East, tens of thousands of sailors trained and flew from Brunswick, often in harm’s way and usually out of the limelight.
At this moment in time and history, as Cold War memories fade and photographs, films and verbal narratives lose their relevance or disappear altogether, it is critically important that we collect, consolidate and conserve the thousands of facts, artifacts, stories and historical incidents that tell the complete story of U.S. maritime patrol aviation.

No One Does More For Veterans. The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States is a nonprofit veterans service organization comprised of eligible veterans and military service members from the active, guard and reserve forces.
We trace our roots back to 1899 when veterans of the Spanish-American War (1898) and the Philippine Insurrection (1899-1902) founded local organizations to secure rights and benefits for their service. Many arrived home wounded or sick. There was no medical care or veterans’ pension for them, and they were left to care for themselves.

Quilts of Valor
Quilts of VALOR
Quilts of Valor Foundation began in 2003 with a dream, literally a dream. Founder Catherine Roberts’ son Nat was deployed in Iraq.  According to Catherine:

The dream was as vivid as real life. I saw a young man sitting on the side of his bed in the middle of the night, hunched over. The permeating feeling was one of utter
despair. I could see his war demons clustered around, dragging him down into an emotional gutter. Then, as if viewing a movie, I saw him in the next scene wrapped in a
quilt. His whole demeanor changed from one of despair to one of hope and well-being. The quilt had made this dramatic change. The message of my dream was:  Quilts =
Healing.
