CAPE ELIZABETH, Maine (AP) — Former President George W. Bush and his wife, Laura, are helping to honor the 65 servicemen from Maine who have died overseas since 2001.
The former first couple made a surprise appearance Sunday at a lobster bake following an annual run in honor of the fallen.
About 150 people participated in the 40-mile "Run for the Fallen" from Ogunquit to Portland, each running different distances.
Organizers said more than 400 people gathered afterward at a lobster bake at Fort Williams Park in Cape Elizabeth.
There, the Bushes paid an unannounced visit and gave thanks to and posed for photographs with families whose loved ones have died overseas.
