Ceremony to Honor MIA and POW

 

By Kaileigh Deacon

Every September on the third Friday all over the United States various groups take time out of their everyday routines to honor and remember those that entered the service and have never made it home. In 1970 the United States officially named the third Friday in September as POW/MIA Recognition Day. The day, while holding no ties to any conflict, reminds Americans of the sacrifice these service members made and the struggle their families are still facing.
