2004 Las Vegas Reunion Photos

Remember
This table is our way of symbolizing the fact that members of our profession of arms are missing from our midst. They are commonly referred to as Prisoners of War, or Missing in Action … WE call them brothers and sisters. They are unable to be with us, and so we remember them because of their incarceration.
This table, set for one, is small, symbolizing the frailty of one prisoner alone against his oppressors …

REMEMBER!
The tablecloth is white, symbolizing the purity of their intentions to respond to their country’s call to arms …

REMEMBER!
The yellow ribbon tied so prominently around the vase is reminiscent of the yellow ribbon displayed and observed by thousands, anxious for the return of our service members in time of war … REMEMBER!
A slice of lemon is on the bread plate to remind us of their bitter fate; and there is salt on the plate, symbolic of the tears shed by those who wait. … REMEMBER!
The glass is inverted, they cannot toast with us … REMEMBER!
The chair – the chair is empty – they are not here … REMEMBER!
