The National POW/MIA Memorial and Museum needs your help.
On National POW/MIA Recognition Day 2019, H.R. 4446 – National POW/MIA Memorial and Museum Act of 2019 was introduced to the 116th Congress. This Bill designates the Memorial and Museum that will be constructed on an approximately 26-acre area on the POW-MIA Memorial Parkway in Jacksonville, Florida, as the “National POW/MIA Memorial and Museum.”
H.R. 4446 will officially designate the Memorial and Museum as National. It needs co-sponsors, so please contact your Representative today to urge support.

Why seeking a National designation is important:
• This will assure to all Missing in Action families, former Prisoners of War, veterans, those currently serving and the general public that there is a site that will remember, honor, and educate by sharing POW/MIA stories.
Why we chose the site at former NAS Cecil Field, Master Jet Base (1941-1999):
• The “Vietnam War Memorial” of POW/MIA pilots was erected in 1973, now known as “Hero’s Walk & Freedom Trees” on this historic site.
• Mary Hoff was the POW/MIA flag creator and wife of LCDR Michael G. Hoff, who is one of the pilots at the Memorial.
Our non-profit organization is all volunteer and supports the mission to providing the fullest possible accounting for our missing personnel to their families and the nation.
