Walking Sticks 

This Memorial Day, our country’s newest veterans will be among those honored by the Cole Land Transportation Museum in Bangor.In years past, the museum has given walking sticks to more than 3,800 veterans from WWII, the Korean war and the Vietnam war.This year, they’ll be handing out specially-designed walking sticks to Maine veterans who’ve served in the war on terrorism.Organizers say it’s nice to see veterans get the recognition they deserve.New Maine veterans who’ve served since 1990 are invited to pick up the walking sticks next Monday near TD Banknorth on Exchange St. before the start of the Memorial day parade.More than 500 are ready to go.
