POW/MIA Recognition Day
September 20 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm
VFW Post 3650 and American Legion Post 105 are hosting the annual POW/MIA Recognition Day Observance on Friday, September 20. The ceremony will be held at Patriot Park in Fayetteville and begins at 11 am.
Since 1979, this event honors the service and sacrifice of those who have been prisoners of war (POW) as well as those of our military that are still considered Missing in Action (MIA). The ceremony includes reading of the POW/MIA Proclamation, presentation of a memorial wreath, flyover by US Army helicopter, personal remembrances of local POWs and MIAs, and the symbolic POW/MIA Table.
Patriot Park is located at 1100 Redwine Road in Fayetteville. In case of bad weather, the ceremony will be held in the Log Cabin, 180 S. Glynn St, Fayetteville.
