There are at least a couple of local observances to remember the sacrifices of Americans who were prisoners of war or are still listed as missing in action.


At 10 a.m., the Washington State POW/MIA Concerned Citizens Association will hold a remembrance ceremony at the POW/MIA Memorial on the capital campus in Olympia.


And at 3 p.m., the Washington Memorial Cemetery in SeaTac will open its POW/MIA bracelet repository. Bracelets engraved with the names of those who’ve been recovered in the past year, as well as broken bracelets, will be put in the repository, and then it will be sealed up for another year.


In addition, federal and state law mandates the flying of the National League of Families POW/MIA flag at government buildings on this day.
