Military TShirt Day - Friday 15th September 2017

Official White House press release in regards to Friday 15th September 2017 - National POW/MIA Recognition Day:

"Americans are blessed with many freedoms thanks to the hard-earned battle victories and tremendous sacrifices of our military men and women.  The members of our Armed Forces shine a light of freedom throughout the world, and as we celebrate our returning heroes, we also remember our heroes who never returned home.  On National POW/MIA Recognition Day, our Nation recognizes all American prisoners of war and service members missing in action who have valiantly honored their commitment to this great country.

It is our sacred obligation to pay tribute to the thousands of men and women of our Armed Forces who have been imprisoned while serving in conflicts and who have yet to return to American soil.  We reflect on the brave Americans who, while guarding our freedom and our way of life, spent years of their youth imprisoned in distant lands.  They paid an enormous price and remained dedicated to our sacred principles, even while under extreme duress.

We do not leave our fellow man or woman behind, and we do not rest until our mission is complete.  For more than three decades, our country has conducted investigation and recovery operations in Southeast Asia with the help of the governments of Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia.  Whether in Southeast Asia, or in South Korea, Europe, the South Pacific, and in all other corners of the globe, we are committed to this most honorable mission of fully accounting for our missing personnel.  We are encouraged by the progress made, but know our mission is ongoing until every Soldier, Sailor, Airman, Coast Guardsman, and Marine missing in the line of duty is accounted for.

As Commander in Chief, it is my solemn duty to keep all Americans safe.  I will never forget our heroes held prisoner or who have gone missing in action while serving their country.  Today, we recognize not just the tremendous sacrifices of our service members, but also those of their families who still seek answers.  We are steadfastly committed to bringing solace to those who wait for the fullest possible accounting of their loved ones.

On September 15, 2017, the stark black and white banner symbolizing America's Missing in Action and Prisoners of War will be flown over the White House; the United States Capitol; the Departments of State, Defense, and Veterans Affairs; the Selective Service System Headquarters; the World War II Memorial; the Korean War Veterans Memorial; the Vietnam Veterans Memorial; United States post offices; national cemeteries; and other locations across our country.  We raise this flag as a solemn reminder of our obligation to always remember the sacrifices made to defend our Nation."

In honor of this day of recognition, please remember to wear your Airport Fire Department  uniform military tshirt tomorrow. C-Shift will be on duty. Thank you and God Speed!

Military TShirt Day - Monday 11th September 2017

"Sixteen years ago this evening, we Americans went to bed secure in the knowledge that we were safe in our homeland. We got up the next morning ready to take on the day by enjoying life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. By the time the day was over, the ugly truth became readily apparent that there are many people in the world that want nothing more for us, our families, and our way of life wiped off the face of the earth. We must always be on our game, ever vigilant, and most importantly - Never Forget." - New York City Fire Department Memorial

In honor of Patriot Day and in remembrance of the terrorist attacks that occured on 9/11/2001, please remember to wear your Airport Fire Department uniform military tshirt tomorrow. A-Shift is on duty. Thank you and God Speed!
