POW/MIA remembrance in South Tampa

Post 138 in Port Tampa City held a POW/MIA remembrance ceremony on Friday, Sept. 20, to commemorate National POW/MIA Recognition Day and honor our fellow comrades still missing from our nation’s past wars, returned POWs and their respective families.
Commander Ron Duncan led the ceremony, assisted by Acting Chaplain Shelli Romeu and Sergeant-at-Arms Dan Carter. Each detail of the POW/MIA chair, table and items was recounted so that all in attendance knew the meaning and importance of the symbolism of the POW/MIA chair.
