AmVet Commander

You'd think that after his membership was revoked, they would of taken Bragdon's name off the bank account. He wouldn't of been able to continue making withdrawals from the account!

Korean War Veteran

Contact the VA, they probably will be able to assist with getting this Vet laid to rest. The VA national cemetery directors have the primary responsibility for verifying eligibility for burial in VA national cemeteries. A determination of eligibility is usually made in response to a request for burial in a VA national cemetery. VA Regional Offices will also assist in determining eligibility for burial in a VA national cemetery. The toll-free number for the nearest VA Regional Office is 1-800-827-1000. Here is the web address I got this information from: http://www.cem.va.gov/cem/bbene/eligible.asp.

Immigrants must carry papers

If you are here in the U.S. legally there should be no problem with carrying your papers. If you cannot produce registration papers when you apply for a driver's license or for welfare assistance, than you don't need a drivers license of welfare assist. These are benefits afforded to legal residents not for illegal residents. If you see this as racial profiling, well, I guess thats just the way you see it.

Whoopie Pies as Official Desert

Although I haven't lived in Maine for many years, I do on occassion order a case of Moxie along with a big box of Whoopie pies. And I agree that Whoopie pies and Moxie go together.

Sun Journal verification policy

I agree with the verification policy. If you feel that you cannot use your really name and you need to hide behind a pseudonym, then maybe you should go to a chat room.

Navy Captain failed key test of leadership

Captain Honors was in a position to lead by example but instead he chose to act like a 19 year old frat brother. He should be held accountable for his poor judgement and unprofessional behavior.

Ground Zero

I'm torn. Part of me thinks, that putting a Mosque at Ground Zero is a good jesture. The other part of me, says no way, no how! This should not be about religion. It should be about the Fallen. Those people who lost their lives at Ground Zero.

Drama Queen

Steven Slater is just a drama queen looking for attention. If you can't deal with the public, then by all means get a new job that doesn't require you to interact with other people. His behavior was over the top........

What a Sham

Mr. Ford who allegedly was spotted stealing two concrete cylinders from a company on Minot Avenue and when confronted by a police officer, he decides to go on a rampage. And his defense is the Desert Storm War that happened 20 years ago! Give me a break. He's just a petty thief, now trying to use his military experience as a scape goat for his bad behavior.... Send him to prison...
