SENATOR HUKILL: POW-MIA CHAIR OF HONOR MEMORIAL PASSES FIRST COMMITTEE

Tallahassee —Senator Dorothy L. Hukill’s (R-Port Orange), Senate Bill 608 that will establish the POW-MIA Chair of Honor Memorial in the Capitol Complex passed the Military and Veterans Affairs, Space, and Domestic Security committee with unanimous support yesterday. The POW-MIA Chair is a way to honor and remember those who have been prisoners of war or remain missing in action and the incredible sacrifices they have made for the United States of America. 

The chair will be constructed, placed, and maintained by the Rolling Thunder, Inc., without appropriation of state funds in the Capitol Complex.  

“I am honored to support this legislation that honors POW-MIA service members and their families,” said Senator Hukill. “The POW-MIA Chair serves as a reminder to never forget their sacrifices in serving and protecting our great country.”

Rolling Thunder, Inc. is a non-profit organization started in 1995 and now has over 90 chartered chapters throughout the United States including 8 Florida chapters.  Their mission is to publicize and educate the public about the plight of American POW-MIAs. 

SB 608 now moves on to the Governmental Oversight and Accountability committee.
