Home / Press / Summit Project is making a difference for families of fallen Maine soldiers

STATEWIDE (WGME) — This Memorial Day, a moving tribute to Maine’s fallen heroes will take place on the peak of Mount Katahdin.

It began with a vision by Major David Cote, an active duty Marine Corps Officer, Iraq war veteran and proud, native Mainer.

He has taken his support for Maine’s military families to the highest mountain peaks in the world. 

Army Corporal Andrew Hutchins was twenty years old, serving in Afghanistan, on November 8th, 2010.  He had just taken over a shift in a guard tower, when shots were fired from the village below.
