"I am going forward with the pride of the rich history, legends that come with wearing the Maine patch," said Sgt. 1st Class Christopher Field, a contract specialist with the 1968th Contract Contingency Team, Maine Army National Guard. "It is important to instill the esprit de corps. Knowing where you come from and never forgetting those who have come before us. We couldn't do our jobs, if they hadn't done theirs." Servicemembers from Maine and Alabama National Guards participated in a staff ride that led them through the key historical sites of Gettysburg, ending the day with a ceremony on Little Round Top. The ceremony was held to honor and remember in friendship the predecessors who fought against each other 150 years ago. (Maine Army National Guard photo by Sgt.
