The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States is deeply committed to achieving the fullest possible accounting of 83,000 missing Americans that include approximately 73,000 from World War II, 7,700 from the Korean War, 1,600 from the Vietnam War, and 130+ post-Vietnam.
The third Friday of every September is set aside as National POW/MIA Recognition Day. Let us remember those who put country before self, but have yet to return home from their wars.
Let us remember their families, who continue to burn the candle of hope. And let us continue to tell the story that without the service and sacrifice of American servicemen and women, there would not be a United States of America.
In support of this commitment, Dept. of CA District 2 requests VFW members send their National, State and Local representatives a letter urging their continued support of this issue; this includes asking members of the public to also write on behalf of our missing veterans.
