Mayor’s Veterans Advisory Council Hosts Annual POQ-MIA Ceremony
As part of national POW-MIA Day, the Orlando 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.
