Speaker of the Ohio House Clifford A. Rosenberger (R-Clarksville), along with fellow members of the Ohio House, honored veterans who have been prisoners of war and those who have been missing in action with a ceremony during today’s House session. As part of the program, the Ohio House was presented with the POW/MIA flag, which will be permanently displayed at the front of the House chamber.

“Remembering these brave, resilient and determined POWs and MIAs by displaying their flag in the House Chamber is truly humbling,” Speaker Rosenberger said. “Courageous men and women volunteer every day to protect our great country and its citizens, and I’m proud to offer our gratitude by ensuring that we see this flag every time we enter the Chamber.” 

The ceremony included Wayne Hutchinson, Service Officer of VFW Department of Ohio; Ron Chapman, Second Vice Commander of the American Legion Department of Ohio; Colonel Tom Moe, a former prisoner of war and retired Director of the Ohio Department of Veterans Services; and David Hilliard, Commander of the American Legion Department of Ohio. The presentation of the colors was performed by a Clinton County, joint color guard with participation from American Legion Post 49 and VFW Post 6710.
