National Pow/Mia Memorial
Birth: unknown
Death: unknown

The Prisoner of War/Missing in Action National Memorial was designated as a national memorial by the U.S. Congress through Public Law 108-454 on December 10, 2004. Vietnam veteran Lewis Lee Millett Jr., sculpted the bronze statue which depicts an American serviceman on his knees with hands bound by his captors. The statue is surrounded by black marble pillars that evoke imprisonment. The memorial was formally dedicated at Riverside National Cemetery on September 16, 2005. It stands in honor to all American prisoners of war and those listed missing.  (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)

Bring Home our loved ones from all foreign lands. They are Americans and should be laid to rest in American soil. Not in the enemies land. Rest in Peace my brothers and sisters till you come home.
