POW/MIAs Honored at NASA Ceremony
Nearly one hundred Ohioans who are either prisoners of war or missing in
action will be remembered on Friday, September 21 during a ceremony held for
employees only in conjunction with the National POW/MIA Recognition Day at
NASA Glenn Research Center, Cleveland, Ohio.
Starting at 1 p.m., after a program of national song, raising of the POW/MIA
flag and a symbolic Missing Guest Ceremony, the names of the missing Ohio
servicemen will be read. A U.S. flag will also be placed for each missing
individual in the garden area in front of Glenn’s Administration Building.
Rolling Thunder, a group that seeks to reach a full accounting of all U.S.
servicemen who are either prisoners or war or missing in action, worked with
Glenn to coordinate this event. The POW/MIA flag, presented to Glenn in 1999
by Rolling Thunder, Chapter 1, Ohio, is flown at Glenn on the day before,
the day of and the day after all federal legal holidays.
Media representatives who plan to attend the ceremony should call Katherine
Martin 216-433-2406 or the Media Relations Office 216-433-2901 in order to
be cleared through security.
