DATE: 11/6/17 Time: 9:00 am
Location: 100 E Campus Dr, Dover, DE 19904-1383, United States
With the dedication, the campus will join the Rolling Thunder Inc. POW/MIA Chair of Honor Program, which is intended to bring daily reminders of prisoners of war or missing in action issues. The chair, which is black with the POW/MIA logo on it, is to remain perpetually empty to help people remember that even though the soldiers are not here, there is a space for them.
Hussey Seating donated the chair, and the cost of installation and accompanying signage is being covered by Les Link, a recently retired Delaware Tech employee and Vietnam veteran.
Link initiated the discussion on having a chair installed on campus.
The dedication ceremony will include brief remarks, a three-volley salute by current service members stationed at Dover Air Force Base and the unveiling of the POW/MIA Chair of Honor.
Delaware Tech has asked for us to coordinate a Flagline for this event. Actual dedication starts promptly at 9 am.
There will be a light breakfast served at 7:30-8 am…please RSVP if you want to attend breakfast to 302-530-4984 before Wednesday 11/1/17
