Event Description The Texarkana area chapter # 278 of the Vietnam veterans of America, inc. Will stage their 30th annual Pow/Mia vigil at the Korea/Vietnam memorial at 7th street & state line avenue in downtown Texarkana. This vigil is to honor and remember those who are/were classified as prisoners of war/missing in action (pow/mia), both those who returned and those still unaccounted for, from all wars, to raise public awareness of this issue and to let the families of these men and women know they are not alone in their quest for answers and for closure.

We will spend one minute for each American who is unaccounted for from the Vietnam war (1611), and one minute for each american unaccounted for from the Korean war and whose name is engraved upon this memorial (37). As of now this is 1651 minutes, 27 hours and 31 minutes.
