In support of National Prisoners POW/MIA Recognition Day, the City of Santa Clarita displayed the POW/MIA flag
City officials paid tribute to the service men and women who have been prisoners of war and those who are missing in action, by flying the POW/MIA flag in front of City Hall.
Although the POW/MIA flag is flown daily in front of the City’s Veteran’s Memorial Plaza, it was a special occasion at City Hall .
“The City recognizes the extreme sacrifices made by members of the Armed Forces and their families,” said Mayor Marsha McLean. “The POW/MIA flag is a significant symbol of our country’s resolve to never forget those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.”
Congress has set aside the third Friday of September in each year as National POW/MIA Recognition Day. It was decided that on this day the flag would be flown over the White House, the Capitol, the Departments of State, Defense and Veterans Affairs, and other locations across the country.
