POW/MIA group to hold ceremony
The Prisoner of War/Missing In Action Connecticut Forget-Me-Nots group based in New Milford will host a bell-ringing ceremony Jan. 26 at noon.
The ceremony, which will take place at St. Francis Xavier parish center on Elm Street near the top of the Green in New Milford, will mark the 41st anniversary of the signing of the Paris Peace Agreement, a document to end active involvement in Vietnam.
The ceremony will take place to ensure unrecovered POWs and their families know they are not forgotten, to seek an honorable resolution to the POW issue, and to prevent this tragedy from happening to future generations.
Many POW/MIA families across the country still wait for answers. Their loved ones may be missing from World War II, Korea, Southeast Asia and Afghanistan.
Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has been missing in Afghanistan since June 30, 2009.
Interested residents are encouraged to bring a handbell and gather at 11:45 a.m.
