It’s the season of giving, and in the spirit of that, I have committed to being on the Be The Match registry as a potential bone marrow donor. Today I received confirmation that my Be The Match swab kit was received and is being processed.

POW/MIA Recognition Day, September 21, 2018
National POW/MIA (Prisoner of War/Missing in Action) Recognition Day is September 21 (annually the third Friday in September) and I thought this would be a great opportunity to provide some of the history on the flag you may have seen featuring a silhouette of an individual before a guard tower and barbed wire in white on a black field with the words “You Are Not Forgotten”.
