This past Friday afternoon, Somerville Mayor Joseph Curtatone and Veterans Commissioner Bryan Bishop invited the public, emergency first responders and veterans to the raising of the POW-MIA (Prisoner of War – Missing in Action) Flag to remember the brave soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines and Coast Guardsmen who served as Prisoners of War or are considered Missing In Action.
This ceremony offered the opportunity to pause and reflect on the service and sacrifice of so many who have served our country.
The flag raising took place at the City Hall Concourse that’s located at 93 Highland Avenue in front of Somerville City Hall.
