Just wanted to share a reminder of our observance and recognition regarding flying the POW/MIA flag on POW/MIA Recognition Day, Sept. 15. We invite the community to honor the State of Arizona POW/MIA Recognition Week of Sept. 11 through (Sept.) 17, sponsored by the Veterans of Foreign Wars and its Ladies Auxiliary.
We the members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Department of Arizona are no strangers to war, having carried the stars and stripes into battle in many foreign lands, in hostile seas and against enemy air forces around the globe. POW/MIA Recognition Week is set aside to honor all American Veterans POW/MIA's of all wars.
The POW/MIA flag, "You are not forgotten," will fly prominently on Sept. 15. POW/MIA Recognition Week will continue to honor those returned and those still missing.
God Bless America.
Bob Rankin, publicity chairman, Veterans of Foreign Wars Department of Arizona
