National POW/MIA Recognition Day
The annual National POW/MIA Recognition Day Ceremony was held at the Pentagon, Sept. 16, 2016. The day, which is observed the third Friday of September, is held to remember and honor service members who were prisoners of war or are still considered missing in action. Speakers at the ceremony included the Secretary of Defense, the Honorable Ash Carter; the Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Paul Selva; former Vietnam prisoner of war, Capt. Gerald "Jerry" Coffee; and U.S. Senator John Cornyn. The Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency works tirelessly to provide the fullest possible accounting for our missing personnel to their families and the nation, and to Fulfill Our Nation's Promise.
