Joint Base Langley-Eustis observed POW/MIA Recognition Day with a 24-hour remembrance run September 19-20, 2019.

Over the course of two days, service members and the community gathered to pay their respects to the nearly 82,000 warfighting Americans still missing.

Special guest speaker, retired U.S. Air Force Col. Michael Brazelton, shared his story of flying 111 combat missions before becoming a prisoner of war during the Vietnam War for 2,402 days.

The POW/MIA flag was carried by service members and civilians during the run which ended at Langley’s POW/MIA Memorial Park for the closing ceremony with the raising of the POW/MIA flag.
