On April 12, 2018, the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs Baseball Team would like to recognize some of our Veteran heroes who have fought for our freedom and we also remember those who lost their lives and those who became Prisoners of War or Missing in Action.
At this ceremony, held prior to the opening game of the 2018 season, we will join together to unveil this meaningful memorial. The POW-MIA National Chair of Honor.
With the chair stands a plaque that reads: You Are Not Forgotten, Since World War II, more than 82,000 American soldiers are unaccounted for.
“This Empty Chair will serve as an instant reminder of all the sacrifices made for ‘Our Country’ by these still missing American servicemen who have for too long been forgotten by all but their immediate families and some close friends”.
“America’s Veteran’s are the Purchasers’ of Peace and every Veteran has earned the Right, the Absolute Right to Come Home!”
Rolling Thunder’s major function is to publicize the POW/MIA Issue. To educate the public of the fact that many American prisoners of war were left behind after all past wars. To help correct the past and to protect the future veterans from being left behind should they become Prisoners Of War / Missing in Action. We are committed to helping American veterans from all wars.
