Post hosts annual POW/MIA Day ceremony


Fort Hood paid tribute to America's service members missing in action and reaffirmed its commitment to never leave a fallen Soldier behind during the National POW/MIA Recognition Day Friday.

The solemn ceremony, which was held at the old Carl R. Darnall hospital in front of its Vietnam–era Iroquois helicopter, focused on the 1,618 service members still listed as missing or unaccounted for during the Vietnam War.

Guest speaker for the event was former III Armored Corps and Fort Hood Commanding General Rick Lynch who reminded the audience that Americans today know little about the price of freedom, citing a recent survey that indicated 76 percent of the American public is clueless about the sacrifices and challenges of those who have served.

"That's why today is so darn important," he said, emphasizing the need to continue educating and financing America's search for the unaccounted so those Families can have closure. "We have to tell everyone what's happening so they can get fired up and do something about it. Let's reach out to our hometowns and remind them that these Families need our help."
