I’m sure everyone knew Friday, 15 September is National POW/MIA day. Our comrades at VFW Post 8870/American Legion Post 66 are having a program commemorating this day and honoring all those who were POWs and those who went but never came back. Let’s mass at the newly dedicated City of Edmonds Veterans Plaza and help pay tribute to our brothers and sisters in arms.
This tribute begins at 6:30pm, the address is 250 5th Avenue North, Edmonds, WA 98020, and it is located adjacent to the Edmonds Public Safety Building.
Guest speakers will be Joe Crecca, a POW in the Hanoi Hilton; Dan Doyle, Navy Corpsman at Khe Sanh; and a special presentation of a portrait to the family of an Army MIA, Vietnam War, whose remains were recovered. Following that, we will be giving 50th Anniversary Pins to all Vietnam veterans attending the program.

Thanks and hope to see you there.
