Local American Legion post recognizes Tyrone PD for POW/MIA flag

Major Van Brock, Tyrone Police Department (R), is shown receiving a certificate of recognition presented to the city of Tyrone’s “Veteran’s Memorial Park” for their year-round display of the POW/MIA flag. David Niebes (L), POW/MIA Project Officer from Fayette County Post 105, makes the presentation.

Sept. 17 is POW/MIA Recognition Day, a national observance when the nation remembers its prisoners of war (POWs) and those military personnel who are still listed as missing in action (MIAs) from our nation’s conflicts.

A distinctive black POW/MIA flag was designed to serve as a continuing reminder to Americans of the responsibility to stand behind our military and to do everything possible to account for those that do not return home.

The POW/MIA flag is flown on designated patriotic holidays throughout the year at the White House, the Capitol, military bases, VA hospitals, all post offices and other federal locations across the country.

Fayette County Post 105 of The American Legion honors those in our community that have chosen to keep our POWs and MIAs in the public eye by flying this special flag all year round.

Post 105 meets the second Monday of the month at the Log Cabin, Ga. Highway 85 South in Fayetteville.
