Moody honors POWs/MIAs

September 15, 2006

Valdosta - In Valdosta, hundreds of airmen gathered at Moody Air Force Base to honor the men and women who were prisoners of war and are missing in action.

Today is National POW/MIA Recognition Day.  It was established in 1995. 

But some airmen at Moody are proud to have a day that unites everyone who has ever served in the military to honor their fellow soldiers.  "Having a day of recognition gives us that chance to focus one day, all the way from commander in chief down to the youngest airmen on what that means to us," says Chief Master Sgt. Joseph Lovett.

This day hits close to home at Moody.
