Maine Veterans Contact Your State Representatives
Keep May 1st as Victory Day

Find Your Elected Officials Here



I just received a legislative Update from Jerald Terwilliger Maine State Director of Cold War Veterans Association he needs your help to keep Maine in line with the other 14 states have declared it as May 1 and with the date the CWVA has chosen.


Once again please contact your Maine Representative and urge them to vote for bill LD111 as introduced.





I have just received word from Representative Duprey that there is an amendment to his bill that would change the date from May 1, which is the date the CWVA is trying to get, to November 9th, and change it from Cold War Victory Day to Cold War Remembrance Day.

So far there are ten members who want the original date and three who want the amended date.

Please contact your state representatives and ask them to vote for bill LD111 as introduced by Representative Duprey. This is very important that we have the original date and wording.

This will keep Maine in line with the other 14 states have declared it as May 1. And with the date the CWVA has chosen.

Once again please contact your Maine Representative and urge them to vote for bill LD111 as introduced.

Sincerely

Jerald Terwilliger
Maine State Director
