Music: "Bridge Over Troubled Water," by Simon and Garfunkel
In recent years the government's public stance towards our POW/MIAs has been that no POW/MIA could possibly be alive after all these years, this despite evidence suggesting just the opposite. It seems that our government finds it easier to turn a deaf ear and a blind eye to anything and everything rather than admit that we left Americans behind. This is wrong. I believe that all Americans must convince our representatives that this attitude is not only wrong but unacceptable. The first step is a simple one...write to the White House, write to your representatives, and be the voice for those who cannot speak for themselves. Below is a link that will provide you with your state's POW/MIAs from the Korean War and the Vietnam Conflict. At the bottom of that list is a link to Operation Pressure, which has ideas on what you can do. While it took me days to get the POW/MIAs for each state together, it will only take you a few minutes to let your views be known to our government.
Please take that first step and follow it up by becoming involved.
