NATIONAL POW/MIA RECOGNITION DAY
In the United States, National POW/MIA Recognition Day is annually observed on the third Friday in September.
This day honors those men and women who were prisoners of war and those who are still missing in action.
Recognize the men and women that are POW’s and MIA in order to protect us and our country. Post on social media using #POW/MIARecognitionDay to spread the word.
National POW/MIA Recognition Day was established by an Act of Congress with the passage of Section 1082 of the 1998 Defense Authorization Act. This day is one of the six days that Federal Law requires the POW/MIA Flag be flown at all places designated by the U.S, Secretary of Defense.
