U.S. Sen. Susan Collins of Maine says the Israelis will visit the Maine Military Authority in Limestone on Monday.

The Israelis will meet with Maine Military Authority officials and conduct a site survey as Israel considers the purchase of tactical wheeled vehicles. The outfit has refurbished more than 14,000 Humvees in the past, and it is one of several organizations competing for an Israeli Defense Force contract to provide Humvees during the next three years.

Collins, a Maine Republican, extended an invitation to Ambassador Michael Oren, Israel’s envoy to the United States, after she learned that Israel is looking to procure additional Humvees.
