  1. John Hunter, Operations Chair, has organized a fitting tribute for our POW/MIA Recognition Day on September 20, 2019. As Veterans and all of America takes time to honor and pray for the return and accountability of the 82,000 Americans (World War 2 to today’s present conflicts) still missing, remember our Nation’s commitment to never forget. Join your fellow Legionnaires on Friday, September 20th, from 5:15 PM to 5:30 PM to renew this commitment and fulfil our promise.

    Attached here is a link to the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency that shows the 33 names of our POW/MIA from Minnesota during the Vietnam War, including Lt. Keith Allen Christophersen, USN from my hometown of South Saint Paul, MN. Perhaps the list includes someone you know, someone you can honor on September 20th and all of us can pray for on this national day of recognition.
