I wish the event well (I fully support dinner dances!) and am sure it goes to good causes, but are there really any POW/MIA left in Vietnam?
According to wikipedia, the “United States Senate Select Committee on POW/MIA Affairs of 1991–1993 led by Senators John Kerry, Bob Smith, and John McCain… found “no compelling evidence that proves that any American remains alive in captivity in Southeast Asia.” Is this considered true, or is there more to this?
Honoring those POW's/MIA
The VFW performs a ceremony for those POW/MIA’s, and we actually have a wonderful man that comes to each POW/MIA dinner that was a POW from WWII. Not too many are left, but we honor those that are gone and those that are still here.
Clears it up for me.
The garlic roast sounds great. Mmm.
The ceremony explains the meaning of the POW/MIA table that we have in our VFW. A quick google search will explain the meaning of each item on the table.
