Chapter 349 and the local chapter of the Disabled American Veterans in Norristown, PA dedicated a POW/MIA ‘honor chair’ to Montgomery County.
Members of both veteran organizations participated in a POW/MIA Day ceremony at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial to dedicate the chair.
The POW/MIA chair is a memorial to the service men and women who have not yet returned home and are unaccounted for. The chair is a symbol of the sacrifices of many families and the people who have defended our freedoms.
The chair will be displayed in a permanent memorial at the courthouse.
Three county commissioners accepted the donation and remarked on the significance of the memorial.
