National POW/MIA Recognition Day

Posted on


First observed in 1979, National POW/MIA Recognition Day is a day when the nation pauses to honor returned Prisoners of War, remember those U.S. Military Members and civilians who remain missing from past wars and to support ongoing search efforts to find those who have not been recovered.  As required by law, the POW/MIA flag will fly over military installations, federal facilities including the White House, and Veterans' Memorials nationwide on this day.
