FORT BENNING, Ga., (Sept. 17, 2014) -- Friday is National POW/MIA Recognition Day. As we perform our missions this week, I ask that all of us take a moment to remember and honor our servicemen and -women who have been held as prisoners of war and who have not returned home. These heroes made enormous sacrifices to defeat our enemies and bring freedom to people in faraway lands. They have lived the values that define our nation, our armed forces, and our way of life.Our Army is a Family in which Soldiers are prepared to give everything for their brothers and sisters in arms. Our POWs and MIAs gave everything they had for their missions and their fellow service members.We must also honor the Family members, who sometimes wait years without answers. They are the ones who keep their service members' stories and memories alive until they are able to return home.We can honor our prisoners of war and those missing in action by remaining committed to our vital mission at the Maneuver Center of Excellence of training the best prepared, most professional maneuver force in the world. Thank you all for everything you do for our Soldiers, Family members and veterans every day.One Force, One Fight!- Maj. Gen. Scott Miller Commanding General
