Galen Cole

Remember Bangor’s Galen Cole, who made a difference for his country, state and city. Vet’s everywhere will miss him for all the help and respect he gave them over the years. He died recently so Let’s Remember him as the hero he was as both a soldier and as a proud civilian.

I still have my cane too and thank you Galen. He built up a fine transportation museum. It is very impressive with a full collection of equipment and artifacts. He also had a nice room of his military collection that is a welcome addition. Time to check it out if you haven’t already.The monuments outside are very impressive too.Now, a monument to those who fought in Iraq and Afghanistan would be a plus.
