FORT BENNING, Ga., (Sept. 18, 2013) -- Friday is National POW/MIA Recognition Day. As we perform our missions this week, please take a moment to remember and honor those who have been held as prisoners of war and especially those who have not returned home. Celebrate their courage and be grateful for their service and their sacrifice.

We should also remember Family members, many of whom wait for years while keeping their service members' stories and memories alive.

And we might also remember those lost this week in the murderous attacks in Washington, D.C. Please keep them and their Families, as well as our prisoners of war and those missing in action in your thoughts and prayers.

One Force, One Fight!

-- Maj. Gen. H. R. McMaster
Commanding general
