WESTFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – The Westfield Council on Aging will soon be home to two permanent POW/MIA remembrance tables.
A dedication ceremony was held on Monday at the Westfield Senior Center.
American Legion Post 124 Past Commander Gene Theroux told 22News that the tables will serve as a physical symbol of the more than 89,000 Americans still missing in action.
“So for a constant reminder that there are others that are still out there,” Theroux said, “or maybe in prison somewhere and we’re seeking a full counting and repatriation of their remains.”
A second dedication ceremony was held Monday afternoon at the Arbors of Westfield.
