National POW/MIA Recognition Day

Posted on 9-18-2019

September 20th, 2019 is National POW/MIA Recognition Day.

POW/MIA Recognition Day is commemorated annually on the third Friday of  September.

Across the country, local POW/MIA ceremonies are encouraged throughout POW/MIA Recognition Week, culminating with a countless number of events and the national ceremony in Washington, DC, on Recognition Day.

Support for Americans missing and unaccounted-for in wartime, and their families, is deeply felt.  America’s POW/MIAs can be honored and recognized, but not memorialized.

“You Are Not Forgotten”

The focus should be on sustaining commitment to account for them as fully as possible.  Strong, united, active support by the American people is crucial to achieving concrete answers.

The Green Bay News Network Salutes and Honors All of Our Area MIA/POWs, and we encourage everyone to work together to bring them all home.
