POW/MIA Recognition Day 2020

September 15, 2020 - The United States’ National POW/MIA Recognition Day is observed across the nation on the third Friday of September each year. Americans take the time to remember those who are or were at one time prisoners of war (POW) and those who are still missing in action (MIA), as well as their families. National POW/MIA Recognition Day is not a federal public holiday in the United States but it is a national observance.

Shelby County Memorial Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 8904 and the Auxiliary will conduct a remembrance program Friday, September 18th, 2020, 10:00 a.m. at the Veterans Memorial, 1885 Historic Courthouse in Center. The POW/MIA Flag that has flown there 24/7 for the last year will be retired and a new one hoisted. 

The public is cordially invited. Social distancing and masks required. More information contact Post Quartermaster Larry Hume, 936-332-0349 or chief@chiefimaging.com.
