POW's remembered

September 14, 2004

Thomasville - The Disabled Veterans of Thomasville held a ceremony today to honor POW's and MIA's. Clarance Goad was a prisoner of war during World War two. When he escaped after 15 months, he weighed only 78 pounds.

Goad says, "It's really hard to remember the people you've left behind and things happened to them. You think about them, when you sit down and start thinking."

At the end of the service 215 balloons were released to symbolize the Georgians who are still missing in action, but not forgotten.
