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.

Charging Forward For America

Not only is it Independence Day, but it is also the year that marks the 100th anniversary of the interment of a WWI Unknown Soldier, so what better place to "Charge" to... Muhlenberg County, to visit the half scale replica of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and meet William Kizziar, a former Sentinel.
We even had the honor to join Suzanne Hoff Ogawa (daughter of MIA Navy Commander Michael G. Hoff) in presenting a banner recognizing the 50th Anniversary of the POW/MIA flag to the Exchange Club of Rome, GA who created the replica of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

What a fantastic day of honoring.... and enjoying fellowship with our new Western Kentucky CFFA Members, who are committed to "Charging Forward” honoring those who have graciously served us! #honor #tomboftheunknownsoldier

My name is Michael Pierce. I captured this image when Lt. Michael Blassie was interred at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery. These gentlemen left before I was able to get their names, and I've never found any photographs from that day that identified them. I'm hoping this will go viral and that this digital copy will find its way to them or their families. ... See MoreSee Less
