POW/MIA - Where are they now and more importantly why?

Dead or Alive...They are in Enemy Hands!

There have been thousands of reports of Americans who remain in captivity years after wars end. Their families will never know what happened to them until the live prisoners or the remains of those who have died are brought home.

I would like to ask the members of Kentucky 1 to support me in a concerted effort to accomplish two things.

I think it is only appropriate that a POW/MIA flag fly in front of every county seat or city office building which still has service members unaccounted for.

I would also like to coordinate to have the local news outlets (radio, newspaper and televsion) do stories about those missing from their area for POW/MIA Recognition Day.

Successfully accomplishing both projects will require a lot of effort from the other Kentucky chapters. However, I think it is a challenge we are up to.

Remember Hal Moore's briefing to his troopers before the Ia Drang battles of '65 in Vietnam: " I can't promise you that I will bring you all home alive. But this I swear... when we go into battle, I will be the first to step on the field and I will be the last to step off. And I will leave no one behind... dead or alive. We will all come home together."
