AMVETS mentioned during the announcement of their
pro-veterans demonstration motorcycle ride
, Rolling
To Remember, that the organization would publish an
up-to-date list of lawmakers who are not properly
displaying the POW/MIA flag outside their offices on
Capitol Hill.


“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 media@amvets.org 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.
