I Remember POW/MIA/KIA/WIA EVERY day.

I fly historic American and Confederate flags as well. They ALL deserve respect and honor. They fought for Freedom.

If you're ever in middle Georgia drop by Andersonville. In addition to the infamous Civil War prison the national POW museum is there. Worth a see.
