POW/MIA Recognition Day

My wife put me on to this excellent article about this Recognition Day,* established by Congress in 1979, to remember our POWs and MIAs:

Incredibly, a total of 83,417 GIs are still missing in action:
  • 73,681 from World War II
  • 7,947 from the Korean War
  • 126 from Cold War actions
  • 1,657 from the Vietnam War
  • 6 from the war with Iraq and related conflicts.
*Takes place annually in the United States on the third Friday in September
