    Hey Jim,

    Your posts read like some travelogue showing on TV!

    Were you ever a tour guide before?

    You’ve found real-life appreciation of your video on this topic; that can be highly flattering for anyone making a difference in others’ lives buy showing appreciation for their sacrifices. 

    Gratitude is a rare trait indeed. 

    Glad to be back here!

    Very nice post Jim … I love Maine! In fact, I just love New England. It’s been awhile since I’ve had a chance to return, but remains on my list of favorite travel spots. Your photos are great and really make the reader feel like they were there for the parade – and what a beautiful day for it!

    Hi Jim,

    I haven’t been to Maine for many years but do remember how much I enjoyed it there.  You have done Brunswick and our service men a great honor with this post.  Job well done!  Thanks so much for expanding our horizons.

      Thanks ~ It was a lot of fun just attending the parade and I already know a
      lot about the area. I had no idea that when I posted the video that one of
      the servicemen would contact me directly. I sent him all the pictures and
      clips I had taken that day.

      And of course this has sparked other ideas for other Maine type posts. It’s
      a nice place to be in the summer. 🙂

    Hi Jim

    Thanks for this interesting post.

    Yes in South Africa we do not have a 
    Memorial Day and this just is something good that my
    US friends are doing, It just make you feel proud to know
    what brave men did for your country.

    Great photos  love it.

    Hallo Jim, I read your blog with interest. I am Dutch but live in Belgium, here also are closings of the army, airports etc. We live in a strange world at the moment and suffer from the financial crisis day after day. The past is what we call history.
    Thanks for sharing,
    cheers Mario.

    Thanks for sharing!

    WOW, Jim

    Yet another Jewel of documentation about your wonderful travels. I never knew about this place… in fact, I’d say, by simply reading your blog about the many different places you travel too… I better start traveling myself or I’ll never be able to keep up!

    Because of my ignorance, I thought that lobsters were the only cool things that came out of Maine. But now… I know much different. (kinda a joke!)

    Keep up the good work, I now have a growing list of places I need to travel too.

      Lobsters are but one of many beautiful and tasty things that we have here in
      Maine. It’s my intention to do posts on several of them this summer. But of
      course the weather just isn’t cooperating this weekend. It’s hard to go to a
      festival in the pouring rain.

      Thanks for the inspiring comment Derrick. Now I’m gonna have to show you all
      much more about Maine.

    You did a fantastic job! You are a fantastic storyteller through all your pictures and videos, I would love to someday go to Brunswick and experience this for myself.  Thanks for sharing!

      Thanks for the great comment. Maine is a nice place during the Spring,
      Summer and Fall. I do like the winter as well but this past winter just
      seemed to last forever. I love to travel and sharing the experience is fun.

    Hello Jim, thanks for sharing your story about Brunswick, I enjoyed finding out about where you live!  You must get beautiful photos of the snow in winter?   bye for now, Julieanne

      Oh I have many opportunities for pictures of snow. We often seem to have
      more of it than our fair share. But I originally moved to Maine to get away
      from those 100 degree days.
      Thanks for your comment. 🙂

    Great post, Jim! It is definitely important to remember our servicemen and -women as we go through our lives. I think that there are just so many times, because of how few people are actually in the military, that we don’t really see what our military does, but it is truly amazing what our military has done for us.
