WWII vet to get medal in Maine

AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) -- A 91-year-old World War II veteran from Brunswick is receiving a Maine Silver Star Honorable Service Medal.

Herman Boudreau is receiving the medal at a ceremony Wednesday at the Maine National Guard headquarters in Augusta. Silver Star medals are given to veterans who are former prisoners of war or Purple Heart recipients.

Boudreau served with the 103rd Infantry Division of the Maine Army National Guard while in the Pacific. He was awarded the Purple Heart and other awards for the Guadalcanal, Northern Solomons and New Guinea campaigns in World War II.

Boudreau continued to serve in the Maine Army National Guard until his retirement in 1968.

Base redevelopment in Maine official wins award

BRUNSWICK, Maine (AP) -- The executive director of the agency tasked with redeveloping the former Brunswick Naval Air Station in Maine is being honored by a national organization.

The Association of Defense Communities has awarded its 2011 Base Redevelopment Leadership Award to Steve Levesque from the Midcoast Regional Redevelopment Authority.

The authority has secured commitments from companies that bring the promise of up to 650 jobs, nearly as many as the number of civilian jobs when the base was in operation.

Officials have secured commitments from aircraft manufacturer Kestrel Aviation Company, which intends to spend $100 million, as well as Molnlycke Health Care, Maine Tool and Machine and information technology company Resilient Communications, among others.
