ILLINOIS STATE HOUSE DISTRICT 107: Rep. Wilhour: POW-MIA Recognition Day – Sept 20

By Press release submission | Sep 22, 2019


Illinois State House District 107 issued the following announcement on Sept. 20.

More than 82,000 Americans remain missing from World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Cold War, the Gulf War and other conflicts. Friday, Sept. 20, is National POW/MIA Recognition Day, when Americans are asked to pause and reflect on the sacrifices made by the military men and women who are imprisoned or unaccounted for as a result of their military service.

As part of the day of recognition, held each year on the third Friday of September, Americans and businesses should also fly their POW/MIA flags, which commemorate U.S. servicemembers who are recognized prisoners of war (POWs) or are missing in action (MIA).

Rep. Blaine Wilhour encourages everyone to learn more about our prisoners of war (POWs) and those still missing in action (MIAs) at the American Legion web site here.
