Fifth graders at the International School at Dundee (ISD) marked Veterans’ Day 2012 by setting a table dedicated to America’s Prisoners of War and Missing in Action, a practice common at Air Force Dining-Ins and Dining Outs. Positioned in a place of honor in the school’s cafeteria, the table served as a reminder of America’s missing airmen and soldiers. Symbolic references included a white tablecloth for the purity of soliders’ intentions in serving their country, a single setting for the frailty of one prisoner alone against oppressors, a rose for the faith of family and loved ones and a red ribbon for unyielding determination to account for America’s POW’s and MIA’s.
