Gone, but never forgotten. Today, the Rock Island Arsenal held a special ceremony in observance of National POW/MIA Recognition Day. It's held every year on the Arsenal to honor those who have died serving our country, many never making it home. With songs, speeches and a wreath laying ceremony, people are reminded to say thank you not just today, but everyday. We're told while many are still MIA, there are those who are working tirelessly to bring the soldiers, sailors, airmen, marines and coastguard back home.
"They go around the world everyday as they get more and more evidence and they do a lot of forensics to try to track down where these crash sites are, where battles happened," said Col. Elmer Speights, Jr. commander, US Army Garrison-RIA.
There are still more than 83,000 Americans still missing in action.
