National POW/MIA Recognition Day is Friday and the Butler VA Healthcare System is observing the occasion with a special ceremony.
The annual Prisoner of War / Missing in Action Recognition Ceremony will begin at 10:30 a.m. Friday in the auditorium of the Abie Abraham VA facility on North Duffy Road.
This is an invite only event with local POWs and their guests invited to attend. COVID precautions will still be followed with attendees required to wear a mask, complete a COVID screening, and social distance.
The Butler VA has staff dedicated to helping former Prisoners of War. This is also a day to remember those who remain unaccounted for and let their families know that they have not been forgotten.
