WHY A POW-MIA MUSEUM?

“While we can debate the rights and wrongs of war, what is not open to debate is what these men and women did for their country. This country called, and they answered that call, and many did not return.

People ask why this is important, it’s important because this country sent men and women into harms way and made them a promise. The promise was that they would be returned and it is a promise made not just by our government and our military, it was a promise made by each individual American. Each one of these men and women were somebody’s father or mother, they were somebody’s brother or sister, they were somebody’s husband or wife. All of us are those mothers, fathers, husbands, wives, brothers and sisters. That makes the promise we made to them one husband or wife to another, one mother or father to another, one brother or sister to another, and this is a promise that we’re determined to keep.” – Joint POW-MIA Accounting Command

The Jefferson Barracks POW-MIA Museum will be a part of this promise, a part of that commitment with which we have been entrusted. A commitment through which our fellow Americans will be able to see and understand — a promise made, and a promise kept.

Well worth a visit.

On this date, May 11 in 1972, Lt. Mike Blassie, call sign Hawk Zero Two, went Missing in Action providing close air support for the beleaguered defenders of An Loc, South Vietnam. For 14 years Mike’s remains rested in the Vietnam War Tomb of the Unknown in Arlington, Virginia representing all of our Missing and Unaccounted For from that conflict... till 1998 when his family found him, and brought him home.

Rest in peace. Thank you for your service.

So they took the Medal of Honor from him that Reagan awarded him when he was entombed as the Vietnam unknown soldier?
