THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Marinette POW/MIA Recognition Day Sept. 15
Issue Date: September 13, 2017
The Marinette American Legion Post 39 will hold an event for POW/MIA Recognition Day at 10 a.m. on Friday, Sept. 15 in the Marinette City Hall Council Chambers, 1905 Hall Ave. The event will reflect on sacrifices made by military men and women who are recognized prisoners of war (POWs) or missing in action (MIA) from all war eras.
Each year, the third Friday in September is set aside to honor the commitment and the sacrifices made by the nation's Prisoners of War and those who are still Missing in Action, as well as their families.
National POW/MIA Recognition is one of the six days specified by federal law on which the black POW/MIA flag shall be flown over federal facilities and cemeteries, post offices and military installations.
