WELCOME TO MAINETROOPGREETERS.COM … the oldest and most widely recognized website and picture portal for the troops who have transited through Bangor, Maine.
WWW.MAINETROOPGREETERS.COM and the picture portal at MAINETROOPGREETERS.SMUGMUG.COM
are dedicated to each of the troops photographed and to their family members and friends. When this group organized we promised that this portal would remain functional to honor each military man and woman on the site and we will make every attempt to honor that promise.
Our work at MAINETROOPGREETERS.COM began in 2003 and the domestic non-profit (DNP) was developed in 2005 for the purpose of assisting our troops in areas not being served by the local greeters program. Some members of MAINETROOPGREETERS.COM were greeting troops beginning in 1991 and had a desire to offer something for family and friends in addition to the handshake and snack offered to the troops.
The primary focus for members of MAINETROOPGREETERS.COM was taking and publishing transitioning troops' pictures on this picture portal. Members also established a flag distribution and care package program which continues.
MAINETROOPGREETERS.COM has never sought publicity for the organization nor personal recognition for its members. It has always been and will remain ABOUT THE TROOPS!
MAINETROOPGREETERS.COM is an independent organization and is NOT and never has been affiliated with the Maine Troop Greeter organization (formalized in 2008) at Bangor International Airport (BIA). With the downsizing of our military in the Middle East, MAINETROOPGREETERS.COM no longer accepts donations as of January 1, 2014 and the DNP is in the process of being dissolved.
This website is currently under construction, however, the picture portal at
MAINETROOPGREETERS.SMUGMUG.COM is fully functional.
