Maine Soldiers Recieve Warm Welcome Home 

Security Force One spent the past year in Iraq.

They were honored at the Bangor Auditorium.

The ceremony was harder for some families than it was for otheres. A special award was handed out to the families of Staff Sergeant David Veverka and Dave Kelly Jr.

Their families recieved both the silver and gold star awards. The silver star is awarded to soldiers who have been wounded in action while gold stars are awarded to soldiers who have been killed in combat.
