National POW/MIA Recognition Day 2023

September 15th, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT

Join us as we recognize prisoners of war and America’s sons and daughters who remain missing with our annual wreath laying at the Memorial’s POW/MIA flag, located on the east lawn (behind the Gold Star Families Memorial Monument). At 11AM, Bedford County Public Schools JROTC cadets will present the colors, lay a wreath, and play taps. Regular admission fees apply for the in-person event.

The remembrance event will be recorded and streamed at 11:30AM along with pre-recorded stories of a former prisoner of war and a missing soldier from World War II.
