Today, President Donald Trump is staying in Washington, D.C. He will take part in the Rolling to Remember Ceremony: Honoring Our Nation’s Veterans and POW/MIA.

Last fall, the president signed the National POW/MIA Flag Act into law. This act requires the POW/MIA flag to be flown at all times below the American flag at prominent federal buildings and offices, as well as military installations, veterans hospitals and medical centers, war memorials and post offices. Prior to the law being enacted, the POW/MIA flag was only required to be flown 6 days a year on federal properties.

The Veterans of Foreign Wars Commander-in-Chief William Schmitz said the law was a “historic victory” and that the perpetual flying of the flag would serve as a “daily reminder” of service members still missing in action.

In his proclamation for National POW/MIA Recognition Day last year, President Trump stated, “As Americans, it is our sacred duty to pay tribute to the brave men and women of our Armed Forces for their service and sacrifice, especially those who endured unimaginable physical and emotional trauma as prisoners of war and those who never returned to American soil.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For President Trump as he honors veterans, those who have been lost in combat and those who have been war prisoners.
  • For the Department of Defense as they continue to find service members who have been lost in battle.
  • For the loved ones of those who have not been found or returned home from war.
