Memorial Day 2021

The Missing Man Table When you see the table of the ones who have not returned, this is what it means. Please take a moment to respect those it represents. •The Cloth is White- symbolizing the purity of their motives when answering the call to serve. •The Single Red Rose- reminds us of the lives of these Americans, and their loved ones and friends who keep the faith, while seeking answers. •The Yellow Ribbon- symbolizes our continued determination to account for them. •A Slice of Lemon- reminds us of the bitter fate of those captured and missing in a foreign land. •A Pinch of Salt- symbolizes the tears of our missing and their families who long for answers after decades of uncertainty. •The Lighted Candle- reflects our hope for their return- Alive or Dead •The Bible- represents the strength gained through faith in our country, Founded as One Nation Under God, to sustain those lost from our midst. The Glass is Inverted- to symbolize their inability to share a toast. •The Chair is Empty- They Are Missing. Memorial Day 2021
