xRemember 2013-2SFriday, September 20 marked the commemoration of National POW/MIA Recognition Day, on which many Americans take the time to remember those who were prisoners of war (POW) and those who are missing in action (MIA), as well as their families.

On Coates Avenue, a quiet street in Bristol Borough, a group of Vietnam Veterans along with friends and family gathered to pay tribute with a 21 gun salute, a moment of silence, and a release of black and white balloons, symbolizing America’s Missing in Action and Prisoners of War.
