BANGOR — A newly renovated Maine Motor Vehicle office in Bangor has been dedicated in memory of Staff Sgt. Brandon Silk of Orono, who died in Afghanistan last June.

The 25-year-old Black Hawk crew chief for the 101st Airborne Division died after a hard landing in a helicopter.

On Wednesday, Maine Secretary of State Matt Dunlap and Secretary of State-Elect Charles Summers were joined by state and federal officials, police and Silk’s family for a dedication ceremony.

Dunlap and Summers unveiled the memorial plaque. Silk was the son of Bureau of Motor Vehicles Senior Detective Mark Silk and Lynn Silk, principal at Dr. Lewis Libby School in Milford.
