National POW/MIA Recognition Day


The United States’ National POW/MIA Recognition Day is observed across the nation on the third Friday of September each year. Many Americans take the time to remember those who were prisoners of war (POW) and those who are missing in action (MIA), as well as their families.

Program Mission


POW/MIA Chair of Honor Program is intended to support POWMIAChairofHonor.org's main mission by bringing daily reminders of the POW/MIA issue to cities and towns big and small across the nation. A POW/MIA chair in any location is to remain perpetually empty to help people remember that even though our soldiers are not here, there is still a space for them...

NEVER FORGET

Adopted On August 10, 1990, the 101st Congress passed U.S. Public Law 101-355, recognizing the National League of Families POW/MIA Flag and designating it "as a symbol of our Nation's concern and commitment to resolving as fully as possible the fates of Americans still prisoner, missing and unaccounted for in Southeast Asia. Thus ending the uncertainty for their families and the Nation." Beyond Southeast Asia, it has been a symbol for POW/MIAs from all American Wars.
Design Specified in U.S. Public Law 101-355.

POW

These go together.

The POW/MIA Flag is specified to fly each year on:


  • Armed Forces Day—Third Saturday in May
  • Memorial Day—Last Monday in May
  • Flag Day—June 14
  • Independence Day—July 4
  • National POW/MIA Recognition Day—Third Friday in September
  • Veterans Day—November 11

When displayed from a single flag pole, the POW/MIA flag should fly directly below, and be no larger than, the United States flag. If on separate poles, the U.S. flag should always be placed to the right of other flags. On the six national observances for which Congress has ordered display of the POW/ MIA flag, it is generally flown immediately below or adjacent to the United States flag as second in order of precedence.
