Vets Gather in Bangor 

Veterans from across the state converged on Bangor this weekend.

The 89-th annual American Legion state convention wrapped up Sunday at the civic center.

Hundreds of vets turned out from 172 posts across the state.

They elected new officers and committee members, and also heard from Senator Susan Collins and Congressman Mike Michaud, who briefed the Legionnaires on the state of veterans’ affairs nationwide.
