Thankful Thursday: National Former Prisoner of War Recognition Day

I could not come up with anything "special" for today's GeneaBlogger prompt until I went to the White House's virtual Briefing Room (obviously I was working on something entirely different!). I came across a Presidential Proclamation that I do not recall seeing anyone cover ... shame on us (and thank you to anyone who did).

April 8th was National Former Prisoner of War Recognition Day.

So ... I am thankful for all the men and women who fought for our country, assisted those who did, waited at home for those who did to return, and those who did not return.

  1. Such a good point. I didn't realize there was a day set aside to recognize these heroes. But I'm glad to learn it. Thank you, I'm sorry I missed it!
