WASHINGTON, April 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The leader of the nation's largest veteran service organization praised the Biden administration for flying the POW/MIA flag atop the White House today.

"It is fitting that this important symbol of sacrifice serve as a poignant reminder to all that thousands of Americans remain unaccounted for after defending this great country," said American Legion National Commander James W. "Bill" Oxford. "Today is National Former Prisoner of War Recognition Day. As far as The American Legion is concerned this flag should be displayed often and in as many locations as possible."
