WCC Marks POW/MIA Day With Ceremony For “The Moving Wall” (PHOTO GALLERY)

Thousands of American military families are still waiting for closure after their loved ones did not return home from combat.  Friday, a closing ceremony was held at Wayne Community College for “The Moving Wall,” the half-sized traveling replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington D.C.  The closing ceremony was held on MIA/POW Recognition Day.  Dr. Jason Raupp from East Carolina University spoke about his work helping to identify the remains of American military service members that are found underwater.  As part of a 24-hour vigil honoring our lost service members, the POW/MIA Flag was carried from Downtown Goldsboro to the WCC campus ahead of Friday’s closing ceremony.  Monday is the last day the public can view “The Moving Wall” at Wayne Community College.
