Maine Army National Guard 2nd Lt. John Hobbs, right, receives his first salute as a commissioned officer Monday, Sept. 16, from Fernand Gaudreau, a World War II veteran who lives at the Maine Veterans Home in Scarborough. Hobbs, who recently completed Officer Candidate School, is a registered nurse at the MVH, where he has formed bonds with several of the veterans. The first salute is a long-standing military tradition.

Hobbs is congratulated by Gaudreau, who participated in the D-Day invasion in World War II.
