“It now appears Congress and by extension those they represent, is forgetting,” said AMVETS National Executive Director Joe Chenelly. “We cannot stand for that, particularly at a time when troops are still fighting and dying in foreign lands as we stand here today. Now it is time for Congress to match that commitment in their hallways.”
As of November 7, 2019 Congressional members wishing to have their name taken off this list must send to a photo of the POW-MIA flag being displayed outside their Capitol Hill office. They will be taken off the list the same day. An AMVETS member will verify in-person to ensure the flag remains displayed.
