POW/MIA remembrance ceremony, Post 25, El Centro, Calif.

The ceremony was held Friday, Sept. 20 at Boyce Aten American Legion Post 25 located in El Centro, Calif. Although this night seemed pretty normal, with more than 50 dinners served from 6-8:30 p.m. and karaoke begining at 8 p.m., this was a night remembered. At about 9 p.m. with 50+ people in attendance, instead of performing karaoke, the post commander took the mic and held a POW/MIA remembrance ceremony. Assisted by the Area 5 commander, the ceremony was unexpected yet well appreciated and touching, as tears flowed from many attendees. The post commander followed this immediately by singing the Neil Diamond song "America," also known as "They're Coming to America." Until they come home - remember!
