NWCA would like to join with our nation as we pause to remember those service members who were prisoners of war, or who are still listed as missing in action. Since 1979 we have officially set aside the 3rd Friday in September to recognize and honor these American Heroes. According to the Defense POW//MIA Accounting Agency, there are about 81,600 Americans missing – from the battlefields of World War II to recent conflicts. About 75% of those are in the Indo-Pacific region. About 41,000 of the 81,600 missing are presumed lost at sea. “WE SHALL NEVER FORGET” Find out more about this special recognition day at this link: https://www.facebook.com/watch/live/?v=581335876542993&ref=watch_permalink
