POW-MIA: Honoring the fallen, the missing and the taken

A POW-MIA flag-raising ceremony was held at Bay College in Escanaba Wednesday afternoon in honor of all veterans and POW-MIA Day. Members of the Patriot Guard Riders and event participants bow their heads during an opening prayer. Bill Lake, veteran and chairman of the Bay College Board of Trustees, led the ceremony.
