Last night was truly an amazing experience as during the Washington Redskins Monday Night Football game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the executive director of Rolling Thunder, Washington, DC, Inc, 1st Sgt Walt Sides and the Vice President, MSgt Rob Wilkins, USAF, Ret., unveiled the POW-MIA National Chair of Honor in section 342, at FEDEX Field.
The chair will remain in the stadium permanentlyand remain empty as a reminder that while many service members cannot be present at the game, there is still a place for them.
Rolling Thunder, Washington, DC, Inc., sends our sincere thanks to the owner of the Washington Redskins, Dan Snyder, the Marketing Director of the Washington Redskins Ginny Jurgensen, the voice of the Washington Redskins, Larry Michael and the rest of the Washington Redskins organization for their support and helping increase awareness of the POW/MIA issue.
To the 90,000+ Prisoners of War (POWs) and those Missing in Action (MIAs), this chair reminds us all of your service and sacrifice.
To the families of these brave individuals, this chair demonstrates our continued support to you and to let you know, Your Loved One Has Not Been Forgotten.
