New Yorkers Remember Those Who Sacrificed

Bob Joseph WNBF

Residents of New York state and people across the United States are honoring the service of those who were prisoners of war and those who remain missing from past conflicts.

Friday is National POW/MIA Recognition Day. The day is observed on the third Friday of September.

Special ceremonies and vigils are being held around the Twin Tiers to remember those who were POWs and those designated as “missing in action.”

In Tioga County, a 24-hour vigil is planned this weekend. The vigil will be held at the POW/MIA Missing Man Table at the county’s Veterans Memorial at the courthouse in the village of Owego. It’s scheduled to run from 3 p.m. Saturday to 3 p.m. Sunday.

Organizers say the public is invited to attend the vigil. Those unable to attend are encouraged to pause to remember those who were prisoners of war and those missing in action, including four men from Tioga County who served in the Korean War.
