My mom has a lot of respect and really cares about veterans. Her father, Richard “Duke” Caron, served in the Marines during the Korean War. My uncles John and Paul are veterans. I am a veteran, having served in the United States Coast Guard.

My pepere died in 2009 after a long, courageous battle with cancer and was buried in the Maine Veterans Cemetery in Augusta. Every year since then, each Memorial Day Mom joins a group of volunteers who place more than 30,000 flags on the graves of the brave men and women that are buried at both VA Cemeteries in Augusta. She now serves on the committee that organizes these events.

Mom has served the citizens of Winslow for over 25 years and I believe her experience, work ethic and true caring nature are what we need more of in Augusta.
