Mayor's Veterans Advisory Council Hosts Annual POW-MIA
As part of national POW-MIA Day, the Mayor’s Veterans Advisory Council
will host an official POW-MIA ceremony to honor United States Military
prisoners of war and those still missing in action.
The Winter Springs High School JROTC will lead a symbolic “setting of
the table” where each item on the table represents the commitment we
have to remembering our POW-MIAs from our five military branches: Army,
Navy, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard.
This year’s ceremony will also include guest speaker, Dr. Thomas A.
Janke, who served in the US Army for 23 years in the 82d Airborne
Division, 3d Armored Division, Third Marine Amphibious Force, the
Environmental Hygiene Agency, and the Academy of Health Sciences,
achieving the rank of Colonel..
