The following is a release from the Worcester County Veterans Memorial Foundation:
The Worcester County Veterans Memorial Foundation at Ocean Pines will dedicate a Chair of Honor as a permanent reminder of those who were held as POWs and the 82,000 who are still missing and never returned from serving abroad.
Everyone is invited to join us, Saturday Sept. 21 at 2 p.m. at the Veterans Memorial. Limited seating will be available. If you know you need seating, please bring a chair.
A Chair of Honor is a permanent installation of a stadium seat that will always remain empty. The seat will be installed near the POW/MIA flag that flies every day at the Veterans Memorial. The Rolling Thunder Inc. Chair of Honor Program is intended to support their mission by bringing daily reminders that the POW/MIA chair in any location is to remain empty to remind people that even though our soldiers are not here, there is still a space reserved for them. They are not forgotten!
