TOWN OF WALLKILL – Prisoners of war and those missing in action are remembered every day, but the third Friday in September every year has special significant as National POW/MIA Recognition Day.

The day was set aside by an act of Congress in 1998.

At the American Legion Hall in the Town of Wallkill on Friday, a table was set aside with the POW/MIA flag and an empty chair at a table signifying those service members who have not been accounted for in all wars involving the United States.
