Washington, D.C. – Nevada Senator Harry Reid today released the following statement in recognition of prisoners of war and those missing in action.
“On National POW/MIA Recognition Day, and every day, we pay tribute to the American men and women who never returned home from combat, and to those who suffered as prisoners of war. We are forever grateful to those who wear the uniforms of the United States Armed Forces, including the 2,100 Nevadans currently deployed around the world, who place themselves in harm’s way to protect our freedom. We admire the sacrifices of these Nevadans and their families, and we thank them for keeping our state and our nation safe. On this day, we promise all our service members that you are not forgotten and we will not rest until we have accounted for every missing man and woman who has defended this great nation.”
