National POW/MIA Recognition Day is celebrated on September 16, 2016. In the United States, National POW/MIA Recognition Day is observed on the third Friday in September. It honors those who were prisoners of war and those who are still missing in action. This day was established by an Act of Congress, by the passage of Section 1082 of the 1998 Defense Authorization Act.
It is one of six days that the POW/MIA Flag can be flown. The POW/MIA flag was first recognized by Public Law 101-355 in 1990. The POW/MIA flag should fly below, and not be larger than the United States flag. It is generally flown immediately below or adjacent to the United States flag as second in order of precedence.

I find this truly hypocritical. A superstate which has a ridiculously high amount of inmates, exploitation of those inmates, torture as a norm and increasing amounts of ‘regular’ people saying they’re being tortured by things like gang stalking and direct energy weapons (‘through the wall’ etc tons of info by people like Kerry Cassidy) and of course international ‘torture without borders’.
That said (as usual) I like the ideal of such days/memorials.
To digress it reminds me of when David Blaine performed one of his amazing feats of willpower – a 6 week ordeal – but left the US for the UK to do so, London of course. I decided to visit him whilst wearing my ‘Ox-blood’ coloured long leather coat (before I was vegan obviously; interestingly a certain Foe knew about it and used it in an ‘induction party’ image/scene even though I only ever wore it twice and I’d wanted bright Red/Crimson blood but ended up with that kind of dark Red/Burgundy bought on my behalf, funnily enough it was lined with Red/Green luminescent/shiny/two tone fabric). David was in a transparent glass box/cage (see tv show ‘Sapphire and Steel’ 1979-82 Assignment Three, or even better/a more up to date see-through invisible prison scenario movie ‘Escape Plan’ 2013) and was on a liquid diet, throwing his nappies out of the box down to the public/a container underneath. I got his attention for a while (I found the fast food stand right next to him [and the bin] very tacky) but then I turned my back on him to look at the river and as usual when you’re by yourself someone just has to bother you. An older man came up to me and started talking about his dead ex-wife, how much he missed her and then about freemasonry and his life. What a convenient location for such monologue-ing (I wasn’t really listening).

(Sidenote – I thought Assignments 1 & 2 were the best for both storyline and production out of the 6; the 1st covers the use of fairytale/rhyme/storytelling for delivering esoteric information and making it [too] memorable, the 2nd covers the use of soldiers and sacrifice – they’re poignant and creepy. Exempting the finale all cover the accumulation of presence/energy/our energy in a place over time and how that effects us from ‘sick building syndrome’ to poltergeist activity and ghosts. For some the gem and metal codename combinations might be interesting.)
