September 15, 2016
RAF LAKENHEATH, England — The 48th Fighter Wing wraps up a joint Prisoner of War and Missing in Action Remembrance Week on Friday.
The week’s events included a POW/MIA breakfast, Rolling Thunder Motorcycle Rally to the Cambridge American Cemetery and Memorial, a name reading and a 5K run with rucksacks. A 24-hour vigil began Thursday and was set to end Friday.
“It’s important to me and I think it’s the least we can do for all of the POWs and MIAs,” said Senior Airman Allisann Lashley of the 48th Component Maintenance Squadron, who was first to read the names of servicemembers still listed as missing in action.
