OGDEN -- A monument is set to be dedicated today, honoring the men and women deemed prisoners of war or missing in action in foreign U.S. conflicts.
Post 1481 of the Veterans of Foreign Wars will dedicate the monument at 6 p.m. in the Northern Veterans Hall, at 907 W. 12th St.
"The VFW is primarily formed to remember the dead by helping the living," post Commander Doug Ferguson said. "We help veterans by remembering the dead."
Ferguson said the dedication ceremony will consist of local POW veterans conducting a reading on the symbolic items to be placed in the monument -- a flag-bearing table adorned with numerous symbolic items.
