Prisoner of War
Your suffering as a prisoner of war can never be understood.
Death might have been easier and
even welcome for you during your captivity.
Your bravery and courage continue to inspire.
May your example of steadfastness never fade
in our memories!
Missing In Action
Your fate may never be known.
Your families may never have their questions answered.
However, we live better lives because
of your service and sacrifice.
You will not be forgotten!
Through the generosity and compassion of
local businesses and civic organizations
POW-MIA's and their families.
You are not forgotten!
