National POW MIA Recognition Day

Just a reminder that Friday, September 19, 2003 is National POW MIA Recognition Day!!!

Operation Desert Storm. During Operation Desert Storm hostilities, 47 American military personnel were listed as missing or "duty status, whereabouts unknown." 21 were captured and released after the cease-fire. The remaining 26 individuals were determined to have been killed in action; however, in 2001, the status of Navy Captain Michael Scott Speicher was changed to MIA, and in 2002 changed again to Missing-Captured. An active effort is ongoing in Iraq to account for Captain Speicher.
I am only one but I am one. I can not do everything but I can Do something And because I cannot do everything I will not refuse to do the something that I can do What I can do I should do And what I should do by the grace of God I will do. Edward E. Hale
