Candles in the park Remembering our prisoners and missing veterans
National POW/MIA Recognition Day is observed across the country on the third Friday of September every year.
Members of the Lititz VFW Post 1463 and American Legion Post 56 took the time to remember those who were prisoners of war (POW) and those who are missing in action (MIA), as well as their families, during a candlelight vigil in Lititz Springs Park.
State Rep. Steve Mentzer was among the guest speakers during a respectful gathering at the Oehme Gazebo. He noted that 500,000 men and women have been captured and interned since the Revolutionary War.
"I am in a large group of people who never served in the military," he said. "I think I speak for all of those lucky enough to enjoy the benefits of freedom, democracy and the free enterprise system. We owe all those luxuries to those who have served and those who made the ultimate sacrifice.
"For those soldiers who are still missing from Vietnam, Korea, WWII and WWI, and the Gulf Wars… we pray for their families, we pray for their friends, we pray for their souls. We ask God to keep their spirits alive so we may someday meet them again and say, ‘Brother, you are not forgotten.’"
