National POW/MIA Recognition Day is celebrated every September 17 to honor the Armed Forces members who remain missing or are war prisoners. “You are not forgotten” is the phrase circulating about American loved ones who are still missing in action.

The date isn't associated with any historical event. President Jimmy Carter established the date in 1979. Since that proclamation, a POW/MIA Recognition Day ceremony has been held in Washington, D.C. at the Pentagon, featuring law-enforcement officers and high-ranking politicians who come together to honor some of the bravest people from our country.

Ceremonies are also held across the U.S. in state capitals, military installations, schools, and veteran's facilities, as well as ships at sea.

How to Celebrate National POW/MIA Recognition Day

The ideal way to celebrate POW/MIA Recognition Day is to attend one of the ceremonies in your local community or to watch it on TV. You can also discuss the importance of this movement and think of ways you can help the families of those who are missing in action or are prisoners of war.

You, your family, and your friends can join the local organizations and volunteer your time to support the parents, spouses, and children of our heroes who fought bravely for our safety. No matter how much time has passed, help the people around you, and show them that they are not alone on #NationalPOW/MIARecognitionDay.
