POW/MIA Chair of Honor Dedicated at Montgomery High School

On Friday, September 21, 2018 a ceremony was held in the vestibule of Montgomery High School in remembrance of the sacrifices of our Nation’s military personnel. A Prisoner of War – Missing in Action Chair of Honor was unveiled which will be a permanent fixture at the high school.

It was dedicated to the soldiers who have given the ultimate sacrifice or have been held Prisoners of War, listed as Missing in Action, and whose remains have not been recovered. Since Word War II, more than 82,000 Service Members are unaccounted for. The unoccupied Chair is dedicate to the memory of those brave men and women and to the sacrifices each made in serving the United States.

The event was organized in a cooperative effort between Rolling Thunder, Inc., a veterans support organization and the staff and students of Montgomery High School.
