POW/MIA Recognition

  • Jonathan M. Wainwright Memorial VA Medical Center 77 Wainwright Drive Walla Walla, WA, 99362 United States (map)

Annually, on POW/MIA Recognition Day, the Walla Walla VA recognizes and honors those who were prisoners of war and those who are still missing in action. 

We are honored to have Lt.Col Orson Swindle (USMC, ret.) as guest speaker. Lt.Col Swindle spent almost seven years in the Hanoi Hilton during the Viet Nam War.

Join Walla Walla VA staff, veterans and their families, and the local community in remembering those who “gave all”, and especially those who did not come home.

All are invited to a light lunch in the Theater (Building 78) following the close of the event.
