As flags are raised across America today in honor of National POW/MIA Recognition Day, we stand united as a nation remembering and honoring those captured and who have gone missing while serving our great country, as well as their loved ones. Today, as in every day, we shall live by the POW/MIA flag’s creed: You Are Not Forgotten.

America's service members are the backbone of the freedom and prosperity this country has enjoyed for more than two hundred years. As the proud son and brother of military veterans, I understand the sacrifices made by our brave and selfless men and women in uniform who fought to keep and preserve those freedoms.

No other country like America has devoted as much energy and so many resources to account for its fallen. We must continue fighting and praying for the speedy and safe return of American Prisoners of War and those still Missing in Action, for our debt to them can never truly be repaid.

May God continue to watch over our valiant soldiers, and may God continue to bless the United States of America.
