The Citrus County Board of County Commissioners presented a Proclamation at their regular meeting on September 19, 2017 proclaiming September 15 as POW/MIA Recognition Day in Citrus County.

Florida residents have served honorably in the nation’s Armed Forces, and many of Florida’s brave men and women are considered missing in action, causing a grateful nation to mourn their fates. The POW/MIA flag is flown in Citrus County as a powerful reminder of those who so faithfully served our country and September 15 has been set aside as a time to reflect and pay tribute to Floridians who, in the act of serving our nation, selflessly relinquished their freedom so we may enjoy the blessings of liberty and peace.

The Board of County Commissioners proclaims September 15, 2017 as “POW/MIA Recognition Day” and encourages all citizens to honor and pay tribute to all POW/MIA’s for their extraordinary sacrifice and bravery on the field of battle.
