In Support For A POW/MIA National Holiday sign now

This petition is to show support for the POW/MIA issue from all wars and conflicts. The current POW/MIA Recognition Day must be proclaimed by the President of the United States each year. The POW/MIA issue is a very important part of American history. The many sacrifices made by the military personnel and especially their families. Imagine never meeting your mother , father or even your grandparents. The current POW/MIA Flag is already nationally recognized by congress.

The POW/MIA issue was brought to the fore front during the Vietnam era. It goes way back in time before that. There were many POW/MIAs before and after the Vietnam Era. This is the list of wars and conflicts for the last 228 years. War of the Revolution, War of 1812, Mexican War, Indian Wars, Civil War, Spanish-American War, World War I, World War II, Cold War, Somalia, Yugoslavia, and now Gulf War II. Then you have the veterans who did come home, but are a prisoner in their own mind. It is a tragedy they have been forgotten. They are the American Heroes of this great country we all enjoy today.

We, the undersigned request the U.S. Congress to introduce a bill and pass it, to make POW/MIA Recognition Day the third Friday in September a National Holiday.
