Group Greetings

Greeting troops

Many groups have greeted troops at Bangor International Airport and have found the experience to be heartwarming and uplifting. We have seen troop leaders with their scouts, teachers with their students, veterans groups and civic organizations greet the troops and all have come away better for the experience.

To make your experience as meaningful and pleasant as possible, we encourage you to contact our Group Greetings liaisons who can ensure your groups' needs are met.

Greeting Protocol

To make your greeting experience as pleasant as possible, please note that certain protocols have been instituted at all commercial airports to ensure the safety of all passengers, including our troops.

No home-baked goods may be distributed in the airport and no tables are to be set up in the airport terminal for the distribution of baked goods or beverages. Baked goods and candies are provided for the troops in the Troop Greeter room and beverages may be purchased for the troops in the airport cafeteria.

Bangor International Airport provides parking validations for two members of a troop's family when greeting their troop. Signed members of the Maine Troop Greeters may have their parking validated when greeting troops.

If you would like to donate commercially prepared foods or other products for the troops, please check out the lists of preferred donations found on this site. Please click here to see the list of acceptable prepared foods.
