Each year, the third Friday of September is recognized as The United States’ National POW/MIA Recognition Day. On this day, those veterans who were prisoners of war (POW) and those who are missing in action (MIA) – and their families – are honored for their service and sacrifices made to the country. Although the day is not recognized as a federal public holiday in the United States, it is a national observance that is often marked by veteran’s rallies, U.S. and POW/MIA flag flying, statewide remembrance ceremonies and much more.
This year, the National POW/MIA Recognition Day fell on Friday, September 18. The following day, former Lawrenceville City Council member Robert Norton – a veteran and former POW – was recognized by the veterans of the American Legion Post 262. He was recognized for his courage and bravery while enduring the unspeakable conditions and experiences he suffered as a prisoner of war. The American Legion thanked and praised Mr. Norton for his service in the Army Air Corp during World War II and expressed appreciation for his dedication.
