Last Thursday, August 26th, 13 United States service members were killed outside of the airport in Kabul by bombers. Dozens of Afghans were killed as well.

With many across the country feeling frustration about recent events in the middle east, this massive loss weighed all the more heavily. Restaurants across the country started paying tribute in a unique way.

It has been a long-standing tradition to raise a toast to those we've lost. To raise a glass to their memory. It's also not uncommon on days like Memorial Day for a restaurant to set an empty table in honor of those no longer with us.

All weekend long restaurants and bars and patrons shared photos of 13 beers to represent the 13 US service members lost just days ago. Take a look at some of the tributes that popped up across Maine.
