To all Third Degree (ers) A New Year’s Eve thought before the fun and, maybe, contemplative evening.

It is remembrance and contemplation that sparks this message. The Maine Military Museum and Learning Center in South Portland, Maine is an amazing , and very special, place.

Its creator and leader Lee Humiston has built, over the years, a world class institution, open to all at no charge, that presents the manifold stories of American military service through the centuries with special emphasis on Vietnam.

The web site is easy to access and I just made a year end, tax deductible, donation and would hope you might take a couple minutes to view the museum online and do the same. Thanks and Happy New Year. John
