Texarkana Area Chapter 278 held its annual two-day vigil for POWs and MIAs in Texarkana, AR .

The aim of the vigil was to encourage the continued search for POW/MIAs from past wars and to develop efforts for future war POW/MIAs. Vigil attendees do not want the government or the general public to forget about the search for unaccounted for servicemen and women.

Although a good amount of soldiers’ remains have been returned, the vigils serve as a reminder to advocate for the families whose loved ones are still unaccounted for.

The two-day vigil included a caravan, balloon release, and remembrance and candlelight services. Veterans from wars in Korea and the Middle East were also in attendance.
