A member of the U.S. Indo-Pacific Joint Service Color Guard prepares to post colors during the National POW/MIA Recognition Day Ceremony hosted by the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA) at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, Honolulu, Sept. 15, 2023. The ceremony is held every year on the third Friday of September, honoring prisoners of war (POW) and missing-in-action (MIA) service members. This day was first established in 1979 through a proclamation from President Jimmy Carter, in observance to honor and recognize the sacrifices of those Americans who have been POW and to remind the nation of those who are still MIA.
