There are so many people, organizations, and businesses who do what they can to help Maine veterans and don't expect to get a fine for doing so. But, it happened.

The Red Barn Restaurant was reportedly fined $200 while hosting the Honor Flight Maine Veterans fundraising charity event last summer.

U.S. Congressman Bruce Poliquin, a member of the House Veterans' Affairs Committee, recently released a statement about the fine and said, "Every American, every Mainer, should do everything humanly possible to honor and thank those who fought for freedom, especially those who fought in World War II."

He added, "As a member of the House Veterans' Affairs Committee, I salute the owners of the Red Barn for their charity efforts on behalf of our Veterans. Every day we can all do our part to honor and help the men and women who have served our great Nation."

The owner shared more detail of the fine she received in Augusta in the video below.
