DLA Distribution holds Patriot Day Remembrance and POW/MIA Recognition Ceremony
The Defense Logistics Agency Distribution Patriot Day event includes a remembrance of those listed as Prisoner of War/Missing in Action. The William H. Noss American Legion Post 143’s Sons of the American Legion and the American Legion Riders perform a field cross ceremony as part of the event Sept. 11, as a large crowd of employees including DLA police and firefighters watch in solemn silence. The field cross ceremony first began during the American Civil War and is used to mark the site of field burials that can later be documented or retrieved.
