Two vets turn dying tree into small memorial for POW/MIA

The apartment complex for seniors and disabled people where I live, Alpine Manor Apartments in Texas, recently had a large palm tree at the entrance taken down. As the tree has been dead for 10 years, it was a good decision.

However, rather than try to remove the stump, one of the workmen, Paul Garcia, a veteran and fellow Airborne Trooper, carved the stump into a bench and placed a POW/MIA flag on it. I took the photo. Many others have not come home, and all of us need to express our support.
