At Last! The National POW/MIA Flag Act was re-introduced on both sides of Congress this past week: House – H.R. 1579, and Senate – S 693.
H.R.1579 - To amend title 36, United States Code, to require that the POW/MIA flag be displayed on all days that the flag of the United States is displayed on certain Federal property.
We need your help! Please contact your Representative and then contact your Senators. Call their DC office, ask for the Representative/Senator, their Chief of Staff or Legislative Director. Tell them that you wish them to co-sponsor the National POW/MIA Flag Act.
1991 - Public Law 101-355 – Congress approved the POW/MIA Flag as a National Symbol.
1998 - National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) – required POW/MIA Flag “must fly” on specific days
2019 - National POW/MIA Flag Act will require POW/MIA Flag to fly EVERY Day the American Flag flies on certain Federal Property.

The main purpose of this blog is to bring awareness to America's missing from past wars and conflicts either as a Prisoner of War, or Missing in Action. We also include Contractors, Law Enforcement Officers and civilians being held in known terrorist countries.
Our fallen veteran's will also have a spot on here as well as appropriate news for and about veterans.
It is also a place to express views and opinions about current events affecting our veterans and/or senior population.
