Description:

The United States’ National POW/MIA Recognition Day is observed across the nation on the third Friday of September each year.  National POW/MIA Recognition Day is not a federal public holiday in the United States but it is a national observance.

Many Americans across the United States pause to remember the sacrifices and service of those who were prisoners of war (POW), as well as those who are missing in action (MIA), and their families. All military installations fly the National League of Families’ POW/MIA flag, which symbolizes the nation’s remembrance of those who were imprisoned while serving in conflicts and those who remain missing.
