POW/MIA Honor Guard

April 2021 

This month’s activities have been primarily devoted to preparation for the City of Smyrna’s Memorial Day celebration.  The Honor Guard will provide the color guard for the opening of the celebration, participation in a memorial wreath-laying and the Missing Man Table ceremony.  We wish to thank the city for asking us to participate.

In other news, we have received the new caps and pins to upgrade our uniforms.  Again, we wish to thank everyone who participated in the 50/50 drawing that helped us purchase our caps. 

The team has been discussing  ideas of where we can place and dedicate Chairs of Honor, similar to the chair at the Missing Man Table in the lobby of the post.  If anyone has any thoughts on this, please contact any member of the Honor Guard. 

The DPAA continues its work recovering, identifying, and bringing home our missing.  The totals to date are as follows.

TOTAL TO DATE——-71

WWII———————-61

KOREA——————-10

VIETNAM—————–0

They are not forgotten.
