Starting on September 14th 2017 with the vigil 24 hour run that will lead us into National POW/MIA Recognition Day on September 15th 2017. This annual event honors our missing service members and their families, and highlights the government's commitment to account for them. Support for these missing servicemembers and their families is deeply felt. America's POW/MIAs should be honored and recognized, rather than memorialized, with the focus on continuing commitment to account as fully as possible for those still missing. Today there are 83,000 Americans listed as missing and unaccounted-for from our nation's wars going back to the beginning of World War II. That's 83,000 military and civilian men and women, mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters, and sons and daughters. It is true that the costs of war extends far beyond the last shots being fired, and for MIA families, the passage of time does not heal their wounds. For them, the days became weeks, the weeks became months, then years, and now, sadly, decades. Information above came directly from Veterans of Foreign Wars & The National League of POW/MIA Families.
