Veterans from Liberty County, civilians and family members gathered to recognize the thousands of service members who remain missing from the nation’s wars. Fort Stewart Command Sgt. Maj. Rebecca Myers spoke at a setting of the fallen service member table.
Fort Stewart garrison commander Col. Bryan Logan thanked the Liberty County Vietnam veterans for putting together the ceremony. “Today we get to honor a very special group of Americans — our nation’s prisoners of war and missing in action,” he said. “These patriots suffered cruel confinement. Others still remain missing, their fates unknown.
“Accounting for these Americans continues to be our nation’s highest priority,” Col. Logan added. “The Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency was established with the mission to provide the fullest accounting procedures for America’s missing. Their motto, appropriately, is ‘until they are all home.’”
