Over 300 Members of US Army Spending Night in Bangor 

Over three-hundred members of the US Army will be spending the evening in Bangor.The soldiers have just returned from Iraq.But there was not another crew to carry out the flight to their next destination.So they have been placed in three local hotels.And are headed for Fort Hood in Killeen Texas Wednesday afternoon.They were all loaded onto buses and taken to the hotels.Many of them could not believe the cold weather.And even though they have over a 24-hour lay-over they are happy to be home in time for the holidays.” It’s actually a blessing really. I’m happy to be here. It’s better to be stuck here then in Iraq.”They all say they can’t wait to see their families.
