In November, we will celebrate Veterans Day. It is a way to remember and honor those who served the country in the military and continue to serve today both at home and abroad.
Then the following month, many will pause to remember the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941 that launched America into World War II. It also is appropriate to mark that date.
In May, Memorial Day is set aside to honor all those who gave their lives in defense of the country.
On all of these occasions, we occasionally remember another segment of troops. But they are seldom singled out. These are the prisoners of war and those troops who remain missing in action.
