DEXTER - The State of Maine has honored Maine women who have served in the armed forces by designing and displaying a plaque in the Maine State House of Flags. Maine women veterans who meet the eligibility criteria will receive a silver "Forever Remember" commemorative coin in the likeness of the plaque.
Those women who have not applied for the coin can obtain the necessary form from the Shirley B. Carter Post of the Veterans of Foreign Wars in Dexter.
The VFW Post will also be holding an "Award Ceremony" later so that recipients of the coin will not need to travel to Augusta to pick it up. If you are interested in getting one of these forms contact one of the following Post members: James Rattigan 924-6945, Anton Larson 924-5481, or Neil Clukey 924-3839.
