LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. – The Washington Redskins' official military appreciation program, Redskins Salute, and Rolling Thunder D.C. unveiled a Prisoner of War (POW)/Missing in Action (MIA) Chair of Honor at FedExField during the Redskins' home opener on Monday.
The POW/MIA Chair of Honor is dedicated to those American heroes that are still POW or MIA to symbolize that there will always be a place in FedExField awaiting their return. The POW/MIA chair's permanent location is in the Club Level on the 50-yard line.
"We are forever grateful to the brave men and women of our Armed Forces, and even though POW's and MIA's may not be present, they will never be forgotten," President Bruce Allen said. "This seat will remain perpetually empty for every Redskins home game in their honor."
Redskins Salute would like to thank Hussey Seating for donating the National Chair of Honor. To view the recap article from the unveiling and photos of the POW/MIA chair, go to: http://bit.ly/2cUHlSe.
