Ron Schnorenberg with the Veterans of Foreign Wars 8834, Hartford Honor Guard, American Legion Post 19 and United Vietnam Veterans.

"Those flags fly at Sawyer Park, and those flags are the coffin flags from deceased Veterans. The families donate the flags to us and then we have them embroidered with the Veteran's name and where they served. The Avenue of Flags is quite a sight." 

The Avenue of Flags are put up in honor of National POW-MIA Recognition Day. We honor the courage of all those prisoners of war and those who are still missing in action.

Americans take the time to remember those who are, or were at one time prisoners of war (POW) and those who are still missing in action (MIA), as well as their families.
