The POW*MIA Elko Awareness Association’s fifth annual Chili Feed and Auction brought me to Elko for the first time. There I found an awesome group of tightly knit, dedicated patriots who worked tirelessly, supported by their community and friends.
The level of commitment I found within this tight-knit group is unmatched in over three decades serving as the Executive Director of the National League of POW/MIA Families.
Their patriotic love of country and commitment to principles were inspirational.
All of their effort was focused on raising funds for our nonprofit organization to help sustain efforts to account for America’s POW/MIAs, unreturned veterans who are our brothers, husbands, fathers and sons.
The POW/MIA families are deeply grateful for such inspired citizens and in awe of their dedication to the cause we all serve.
