Americus -- South Georgians take the lead in honoring troops taken prisoner during war and those who never returned from battle.
Friday is National POW MIA Day, and a symposium was held in Americus to draw attention to the National Prisoner of War Museum located at the Andersonville National Historic Site. Two speakers at the forum say we need to do more than honor POW's one day each year, nd we need to emphasize the sacrifice of prisoners' families.
"We just need to remember that there are families, particularly, who have paid the price over time, for the freedoms that we enjoy," said Cmdr. Porter Halyburton, U.S. Navy, Retired.
"POW's themselves have made sacrifices, they understand it, and they want to make sure and help others to understand the sacrifices that are made for our freedom," Col. Fred Cherry, U.S. Air Force, Retired.
Events continue this week in Sumter County. POW's will arrive at Georgia Southwestern Friday morning, escorted by the Rolling Thunder motorcyclists, followed by another forum on campus. There will be a memorial service Saturday at Andersonville National Cemetery.
