POW/MIA Silent March in Kenosha Sept 19th

Paul Herrick Post 21 has the honor of hosting the 1st District POW/MIA Silent March this year, and because of recent events we would like to make it a special one.

We also have the responsibility to be a voice for those that gave up their voices for our country. No matter what political party, race, religion, or sex, we stand as one honoring those that did not come home yet.

Let us never forget.
