POW/MIA ceremony VFW Post 2600

Veterans, families and friends gathered at VFW Post 2600 in San Andreas on Friday September 19, 2014 to remember those missing in action and those who were prisoners of war.

Approximately 35 people were in attendance for the somber ceremony. 

The posting of the colors, the lone table honoring those who have yet to return home, the 21 gun salute and the playing of taps, all contributed to the emotions playing throughout the crowd. The thousand yard stare clearly visible on the faces of those who served, as memories seemingly replayed in their minds while the last notes of taps disappeared on the evening air.

The message of the evening, never forget.
