I did not know Mr. Gorden,but recently bought a steel cabinet at the state salvage place in Augusta,and moved it up to my remote camp in the big woods. I found a Maine state ,"end of watch" memorial sticker on the cabinet with pilot Gordens name and badge number. I looked him up online,and found this site. I did not know you,warden,but I love the big woods,as you must have also. Thank you for your service,and rest in peace. Steve Whittier,camp#9,T3R1.
