SCKMC was honored to receive a gift of a POW-MIA flag on behalf of VFW Post 1254. The flag was presented during a special ceremony for National POW/MIA Recognition Day. Americans across the U.S. pause to remember the sacrifices and service of those who were prisoners of war (POW), as well as those who are missing in action (MIA), and their families.
The ceremony included a speech from Michael Holland, Department of Kansas Veterans of Foreign Wars State Jr. Vice Commander, as well as the official flag raising.
“We must not forget the sacrifices that these comrades are still making or the suffering that they are still enduring for us and our way of life,” Holland said.
All military installations fly the National League of Families’ POW/MIA flag, which symbolizes the nation’s remembrance of those who were imprisoned while serving in conflicts and those who remain missing.
“On behalf of SCKMC, we thank the VFW for including us on this special day,” said Clayton Pappan, SCKMC Chief Marketing Officer. We are grateful for all those who have served our country as well as those who are currently protecting our freedoms, and proudly fly the POW/MIA flag.”
