Veterans and public invited to attend POW/MIA recognition service in Franklin

(Franklin, GA) — The American Legion Riders Chapter 76 from Mobile AL will be traveling to The Heard County American Legion Post 148 on Thursday Sept. 19, 2019 at around 1:45 PM to raise the POW/MIA flag at Post 148.

The Riders are leaving Mobile on Monday, Sept. 16 and stopping at Veteran Posts along the GA-AL border and will arrive in Montgomery on Friday Sept. 21 for a Memorial Service.

ALL VETERANS AND THE GENERAL PUBLIC ARE INVITED TO ATTEND THIS SPECIAL SERVICE.

Many Americans across the United States pause to remember the sacrifices and service of those who were prisoners of war (POW), as well as those who are missing in action (MIA), and their families.

All military installations fly the National League of Families’ POW/MIA flag, which symbolizes the nation’s remembrance of those who were imprisoned while serving in conflicts and those who remain missing.

Veteran rallies take place in many states, such as Wisconsin, in the United States on National POW/MIA Recognition Day.

United States flags and POW/MIA flags are flown on this day and joint prayers are made for POWs and those missing in action.

National POW/MIA Recognition Day posters are also displayed at college or university campuses and public buildings to promote the day.

Remembrance ceremonies and other events to observe the day are also held in places such as the Pentagon, war memorials and museums.
