Charles "Dusty" Fisher is now a Maine Troop Greeter at Bangor International Airport. He has probably greeted more flights than most Troop Greeters over the last couple of decades.

Back to that in a bit. First, let's go way back with Dusty.

Dusty was in the Army, and still to this day enjoys the relationships that were developed between the unit members. Dusty calls them "family" and they are still in touch all these years later.

As Dusty reminisces, he says

“The life lessons learned in basic training boot camp began more obvious and more important over time.”

Dusty was assigned to NORAD. Yes, He was the one who let television and radio stations know where Santa was on Christmas Eve.

He has done a lot of things in his life. He taught history to high dchool students. He was also a Maine state representative. However, he considers being a Maine Troop Greeter one of the most important things he has done, saying,

“It is good for our souls.”

Dusty, Thank you for your service and thank you for that continued service over so many years with Maine Troop Greeters.
