                National POW/MIA Recognition Day, 2008

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                On National POW/MIA Recognition Day, we honor the brave 
                and patriotic Americans who were held as prisoners of 
                war, and we remember those who are still missing in 
                action. For their valor and selfless devotion to 
                protect the country they love, our Nation owes them a 
                debt we can never fully repay. On this day we 
                underscore our commitment and pledge to those who are 
                still missing in action and to their families that we 
                will not rest until we have achieved the fullest 
                possible accounting for every member of our Armed 
                Forces missing in the line of duty.

                To observe this important day, the National League of 
                Families POW/MIA flag is flown over the Capitol, the 
                White House, the World War II Memorial, the Korean War 
                Veterans Memorial, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, and 
                other locations across our country. The flag is a 
                solemn reminder of our Nation's enduring obligation and 
                promise to our courageous service members who remain 
                missing and a tribute to those who have been imprisoned 
                while serving their country in conflicts around the 

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the 
                United States of America, by virtue of the authority 
                vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United 
                States, do hereby proclaim Friday, September 19, 2008, 
                as National POW/MIA Recognition Day. I call upon the 
                people of the United States to join me in honoring and 
                remembering all former American prisoners of war and 
                those missing in action for their valiant service to 
                our Nation. I also call upon Federal, State, and local 
                government officials and private organizations to
