National POW-MIA Recognition Day


Today, the nation honors the sacrifices made by members of the armed forces who were prisoners of war or are missing in action by displaying the POW-MIA flag. U.S. Public Law 101-355, passed by the 101st Congress on August 10, 1990, designated the third Friday in September as one of six days each year in which to display the flag honoring those still unaccounted for.

Five other days in which to display the flag include:

– Armed Forces Day: Third Saturday in May.

– Memorial Day: Last Monday in May.

– Flag Day: June 14.

– Independence Day: July 4.

– Veterans Day: November 11.
