Thank You, John. The POW/MIA program is very near and dear to my heart.
Where did you get the place settings?Awesome!
Roy, the tables that are used for formal POW/MIA ceremonies vary in size. Often it's only a table for one, but I've seen tables for as many as six, representing all of the military services. The items on the table have a distinct meaning and that's explained during the memorial service. The place settings themselves do not have to be as elaborate as the ones pictured. I suspect the branch insignias were added to black plates. The POW/MIA memorial service is a very moving experience. Most service organizations honor our POWs and MIAs with this "white table" prior to official functions. Some of those services are quite simple; others extremely elaborate.There are several very good videos available on YouTube by searching for "POW/MIA".
