ELKO, NEVADA JOINS THE BIG FIVE

Elko, Nevada has in five years managed to join the five most active states on the POW/MIA Issue. Elko now joins Idaho, Michigan, Ohio, New Jersey and Georgia as the most active and successful in Public Awareness.  The POW/MIA Elko Awareness Association has galvanized the support of their entire community behind the Issue in support of the National League of POW/MIA Families. At a February event held by the Association, they raised a record amount in fundraising to benefit the League. Elko has done what normally takes an entire state to accomplish. Thank You Elko and welcome to our family.

~POW*MIA group is awesome~

"The POW*MIA Elko Awareness Association's fifth annual Chili Feed and Auction brought me to Elko for the first time.  There I found an awesome group of tightly knit, dedicated patriots who worked tirelessly, supported by their community and friends.

The level of commitment I found within this tight-knit group is unmatched in over three decades serving as the Executive Director of the National League of POW/MIA Families.

Their patriotic love of country and commitment to principles were inspirational.

All of their effort was focused on raising funds for our nonprofit organization to help sustain efforts to account for America's POW/MIAs, unreturned veterans, who are our brothers, husbands, fathers and sons.

The POW/MIA families are deeply grateful for such inspired citizens and in awe of their dedication to the cause we all serve."

Ann Mills-Griffiths, Executive Director - National League of POW/MIA Families

"I wish I could always write each one of you individually. Please just know that we so appreciate each and every one of you and your prayers and support. We especially want to thank you for always praying for Bowe as he doesn't have the physical support you give us, only the spiritual. But he's doing well because of your prayers. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!"

"The Missing in America Project is an avid supporter of the POW*MIA Elko Awareness Association. We are proud to partner with them on all Veterans issues and specifically in supporting them in requesting that Nevada fly the POW*MIA flag at the Capital and across the state. We also rely on them to be the action arm of MIAP for all funerals and honors necessary for our unclaimed veterans that are languishing on shelves. Please honor any and all requests from them as speaking for the Missing in America Veterans Recovery Program a national nonprofit 501 (c ) (3)."
