POW/MIA Recognition Day honors the commitments and the sacrifices made by our nation’s prisoners of war and those who are still missing in action. Take some time to remember on this day. Say a prayer.
National POW/MIA Recognition Day on the third Friday of September, is one of the six days specified by law on which the black POW/MIA flag shall be flown over federal facilities and cemeteries, post offices and military installations. The other days are: Armed Forces Day, Memorial Day, Flag Day, Independence Day, and Veterans Day. Plan ahead and check with your local facilities to make sure they have a POW/MIA flag and if not, it would be a great time to make a formal presentation of the flag to the facility. POW/MIA – YOU ARE NOT FORGOTTEN.
