National POW/MIA Recognition Day
I had the great honor to speak at the POW/MIA Memorial Dedication ceremony at Veterans Memorial Park in Lakeland. The ceremony also recognized the late, and courageous, U.S. Army Air Corps Staff Sergeant Foster Eugene Heath, a World War II prisoner of war. Thank you to our selfless service members who were, and still are, prisoners of war or missing in action. God Bless.
I love meeting with students from the Randy Roberts Foundation every year. These bright future leaders of our communities are true inspirations, and I commend their engagement and drive for learning about our nation's government and history.
