The Fort Rosecrans annex will include an area dedicated to former POW Veterans. This will be the site where their POW designed statue “The Liberation Moment” will stand as a commemorative tribute to those Vets who have experienced the infamy of foreign captors in the service of our Country.

Members of the Chapter have been invited to broadcast live, from the deck of the USS Midway on the Veteran’s day special edition of the Roger Hedgecock radio show.
