The POW-MIA Candlelight March and Memorial Service was held Sept. 16. Command Sgt. Major Brad Olson was the guest speaker at the annual event. He mentioned that when we walk away, remember who these people are, fathers, sons, not the numbers, and the unimaginable hardships on them and family. An empty chair and an inverted rifle with helmet were visual reminders of the missing. “They still serve” and “You Are Not Forgotten” are key to the event in North St. Paul.
