Today, September 19, 2014, is National POW/MIA Recognition Day. By the numbers from the Department of Defense:
- 1,641 personnel are missing and unaccounted-for from the Vietnam War
- More than 83,000 Americans are missing from World War II, the Korean War, the Cold War, the Vietnam War and the 1991 Gulf War.
So, take a moment to honor those who remain missing and those who suffered starvation, isolation, fear, and uncertainty, during captivity.
