    Alachua County Veteran Services in collaboration with Rolling Thunder Florida Chapter 3, are having a "Never Forget" ceremony on 9/16/2017, beginning at 10:00 am at Veterans Memorial Park.

    This day is observed across the nation on the third Friday of September.  To include citizens who are unable to leave work for this day, this event is being held on Saturday, September 16th.  National POW/MIA Remembrance Day is when many Americans take the time to remember those who were prisoners of war (POW) and those who are missing in action (MIA) as well as their families.

    Alachua County Veteran Services Director Kim Davis said "All are welcome to join us as we take this time to honor the American service member who served our nation while in captivity by the enemy and the over 83,000 American service members who are still unaccounted for from our wars."
