Around 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. 17, 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. service members who are recognized prisoners of war (POW) or are missing in action (MIA).
Veterans have an opportunity to use the land they fought to defend, getting assistance along the way from the Farmer Veteran Coalition, the nation’s largest nonprofit organization assisting Veterans to embark on careers in agriculture. LEARN MORE
