2021 POW-MIA Recognition Ceremony


 Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer and his Veterans Advisory Council will host an official POW-MIA ceremony to honor United States Military prisoners of war and those still missing in action on Friday, September 17 at 10:30 a.m. at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, DeVos Family Room.

Cadets from AFROTC Detachment 159 from the University of Central Florida will lead a symbolic “setting of the table” where each item on the table represents the commitment we have to remembering our POW-MIAs from our five military branches: Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard.

The ceremony renews our commitment to bringing prisoners of war home to their families and vowing to never forget those missing in action. 

With over three decades of distinguished service, US Army Retired Colonel Calvin B. Wimbish will be delivering the keynote address.
