    National POW/MIA Recognition Day: The third Friday in September is set aside as National POW/MIA Recognition Day. On Sept. 18 this year, VFW Posts around the country will host ceremonies to remember those 88,000 Americans who remain missing and unaccounted-for since World War II, and to honor those 138,000 Americans who were captured. To aid in preparations, the VFW website contains a recommended speech and POW/MIA Awareness Brochure, which contains instructions for the Missing Man Table of Honor ceremony.
