POW/MIA REMEMBRANCE DAY

The United States’ National POW/MIA Recognition Day is observed across the nation on the third Friday of September each year. Many Americans take the time to remember those who were prisoners of war (POW) and those who are missing in action (MIA), as well as their families.

Please join us in honoring our prisoners of war and missing in action during during the POW/MIA week.

 

 

MISSING MAN TABLE & HONORS CEREMONY
As you entered the room, you may have noticed a special table; it is reserved to honor our
missing men.

The table is round – to show our everlasting concern.    

The cloth is white – symbolizing the purity of their motives when answering the call to serve.    

The single red rose reminds us of the lives of these Americans….and their loved ones and
friends who keep the faith, while seeking answers.    

The red ribbon symbolizes our continued uncertainty, hope for their return and
determination to account for them.    

A slice of lemon reminds us of their bitter fate, captured and missing in a foreign land.    

A pinch of salt symbolizes the tears of our missing and their families - who long for answers
after decades of uncertainty.    

The lighted candle reflects our hope for their return – alive or dead.    

The Bible represents the strength gained through faith to sustain us and those lost from our
country, founded as one nation under God.    

The glass is inverted – to symbolize their inability to share a toast.    

The chairs are empty – they are missing…………….. (moment of silence)    

Let us now raise our water glasses in a toast to honor America’s POW/MIAs, to the success
of our efforts to account for them, and to the safety of all now serving our nation!
