POW/MIA

 Thinking of POW/MIA Week and POW/MIA Day recognition brought to my mind some of my past veterans activities as chaplain to military veterans.

I recall a veterans recognition activity I attend in Colorado Springs CO. where we lived in the later 1990's. I would have attended normally but upon arrival I was recognized as the chaplain serving at the state level for the Disabled American Veterans and was invited to set in the front row. 
 As I recall I was seated next to an ordinary gentleman in jeans and open collar shirt, he politely introduced himself as “Newt” and ask about me, my chaplains vest and the DAV cap. He seemed appreciative of my activities for veterans.
The program began with a prayer, post the colors, flag salute & recognition of dignitary's then introduction of speakers. When they introduced the man that designed the MIA/POW Flag Mr. Newton Foust "Newt" Heisley ! The nice gentleman next to me stood and walked to the podium, he spoke mildly of the inspiration of the images on the flag and a meeting he had with a wife of a MIA/POW and her struggles with the US Military (Air Force) and her husbands status, 1st she was told he was Missing in Action, then “oh, he is being held prisoner” then the DOD clerk that said “who?” She said it appeared the military had forgotten their pilot, “her husband” was missing!
That lead to the words on the flag “YOU ARE NOT FORGOTTEN”
He spoke humbly pointing to the greater efforts of others that were behind the images that were almost just scribbled on a plain piece of paper that he handed to the spokes person for the National League of Families and became the National League of Families POW/MIA flag.


Gee, I was just setting next to Him!

This old story of Chaplain Lewis is very interesting as he shared his experience of early 1900s when he was in Colorado. I love such men who share old stories and their experience of life.

"This game is so a lot of fun. the primary concern I couldn't care less for is that there are such an enormous number of commercials and u can't skip you have to watch them until the end."

chicco keyfit 30 zip vs keyfit 30 magic on Saturday, December 7, 2019 1:08 AM
Chicco Keyfit 30 Zip is the model that doesn't accompany 3D AirMesh backrest. It's offered at the lower cost than Chicco Keyfit 30 Zip. On the off chance that you find that your kid doesn't perspire a great deal or you don't live with the blistering climate, at that point I'm certain that Chicco Keyfit 30 Zip is the one that you ought to pick. You can set aside some cash by picking this newborn child vehicle seat model. Where's prescribed put in to request one? You should arrange Chicco Keyfit 30
