VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - Personnel at Moody Air Force Base remember Americans who have been POWs and those still missing in action. 

During the base's annual POW-MIA Day, Lt. Colonel Robert Sweet reminded the audience that the men and women who have been held captive and those who are still missing are heroes.

A proclamation by President Bush was read during the ceremony by Col. Sweet, a former POW.

"A lot of things happen in the world, a lot of thing happen with our country and we want to make sure those people aren't forgotten that's the debt we owe them and their familes."

Lt. Colonel Sweet is currently the Deputy Commander of the 23rd Fighter Group at Moody AFB.
