POW/MIA Memorial

by lewwaters

I was pleased to read of the dedication this past Saturday of the POW/MIA Memorial at the Armed Forces Reserve Center on Fourth Plain. Unfortunately, I was unable to attend.

I was able to not only attend the POW/MIA recognition ceremonies in 2011, but to tape the speaker as well, former WWII POW Dale Bowlin, who also spoke this past Saturday, video below.

Sorry about background noise, but he was speaking very close to the freeway that day.

  1. I too missed this event. Paul Harris spoke this year as well. Wish I could’ve made it.

  2. I wanted to go and get better tapes, less background noise and more stable with the better camera, but just couldn’t make it.

    I at least have this one and several of the guys from Pearl Harbor on tape while we can get their words recorded.

    They all have stores that should never be forgotten.
