VAFB commemorates POW/MIA
The ‘Missing Man Table’ sits at the Prisoner of War and Missing in Action Closing Ceremony Sept. 18, 2020, at Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif. Each detail of the table symbolizes an aspect of the POW/MIA’s life or fate, or of those whom they left behind. During many formal United States Air Force events, this table is displayed to signify those who are missing but are not forgotten. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Hanah Abercrombie)
