I’m about to head to Fort Lewis for the memorial service of Sgt. Blair Emery. I’ve found some stories from his home state in Maine that I thought you might want to read.

Here‘s the story from the Bangor Daily News reporting his death.

An Associated Press story about a hometown memorial service can be found here, The Portland Press Herald’s take is here, the Boston Globe’s is here and the Bangor Daily News’ article is here.

The Portland Press-Herald ran a story about how Lee, population 845, is dealing with two deaths from the war in Iraq.
