A memorial honoring America’s service members missing in action and prisoners of war will be unveiled at the Poway Veterans Park during a Veterans Day ceremony on Sunday, Nov. 11 at 11 a.m.
The memorial will include both a bronze Fallen Soldier Battle Cross sculpture, which is the symbolic marker placed at a base camp of a soldier who has been killed, and hand-painted custom tile depicting the Missing Man table, which is a place of honor set up in military dining facilities on special occasions to in memory of fallen, missing or imprisoned military service members.
The memorial will be placed on the eastern slope of the park’s main plaza and is paid for by the Veterans Park Maintenance Fund. The installation has been donated by Barnhart-Reese Construction.
The Veterans Park, located at 14135 Midland Road, serves as a permanent tribute to the past, present, and future veterans of the United States Military who have provided unselfish and honorable service to this country.
