POW/MIA RECOGNITION DAY FRIDAY, SEPT. 18, 2009
REMEMBERING AND HONORING THE POWs, THE MIAs, AND THEIR FAMILIES
by Rees Lloyd
The third Friday of September is annual "POW/MIA Recognition Day," a day to remember the service and suffering of prisoners of war, and those still missing in action -- and their families; a day to honor them, and to reaffirm the commitment to search for and bring home the MIAs.
It is one of six days on which Congress has mandated that the National League of Families POW/MIA Flag be flown over the Capitol, the White House, military bases, veterans memorials and cemeteries, post offices, and other locations nationwide. (36 U.S. Code Section 902)
