Veterans of Foreign Wars service officer Herb Stettler, left, Post Commander Chuck Rhodes, behind flag, and past Commander Sam Huddleston raise new flags in front of the Soldotna VFW post Friday in honor of National Prisoner of War-Missing In Action Day.
In a brief ceremony attended by about 25 members of the post and its Ladies Auxiliary, Rhodes thanked the auxiliary for purchasing the new American flag, Alaska state flag and POW-MIA flag for the event. In an address about the flags, Huddleston said they represent in part "the rights we defend against all enemies who seek to crush the way of life that you and I cherish."
