National POW/MIA Recognition Day

National POW/MIA Recognition Day was yesterday and is the third Friday of each September, at least in the USA.

A small display was set up in Omaha’s Memorial Park, and I snapped a few photos and spoke with one of the veterans, a Viet Nam-era Marine named Mark, who was a great guy and a fellow photographer who recognized my Leica from his days in Marines, back in the 1960’s and 70’s.
