Friends, proud family members and Mayor Bill Euille gathered in Old Town to watch military veterans graduate with an expertise in archaeology Friday.
Euille thanked the graduates — all members of the Veterans Curation Program — for their service and praised the program for its dedication to providing job training for former soldiers. For three years, the program, administered by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at a St. Asaph Street office, has employed and trained veterans in its archaeology laboratories, teaching technical skills like cataloging, records management and artifact preservation.
Sounds more like lab-related training than the sort of field work most techs do. But I like it.
UPDATE: Definitely related.
