Honoring Those Who Served

At Maine Veterans’ Homes, we believe it is a privilege and our responsibility to support and provide care to those who served our country. As a way to honor these men and women and show our appreciation, we feature Veterans of the Month throughout the entire year.

Please take the opportunity to read our featured blogs that share the stories, memories and photos of these honored veterans of Maine.
