A lunch in honor of UMaine’s veterans, which was part of UMaine’s Veterans Week activities, was featured in a Channel 5 (WABI) report. Thomas Banister, senior military instructor for UMaine’s ROTC program, and Nancy Laffin, president of the UMaine Veterans Association, were interviewed for the story. Banister said likely one in five students on campus have some sort of military affiliation. The report also noted Maine first lady Ann LePage and U.S. Rep. Mike Michaud attended the lunch. Channel 7 (WVII) also covered the lunch.
