Resolution 288, Adopted at the 67th National Convention, calls for designating a POW/MIA Empty Chair at all official meetings of the American Legion as a physical symbol of the thousands of American POW/MIA’s still unaccounted for from all Wars and Conflicts involving the United States of America.

Accordingly, at this time the Sgt-At-Arms will place the POW/MIA Flag on the Empty Chair – A reminder for all of us to spare no effort to secure the release of any American Prisoners from captivity, the Repatriation of the remains of those who died bravely in Defense of Liberty, and a full accounting of those missing.

Let us rededicate ourselves for this vital endeavor.
