The POW MIA Remembrance at Atlantic Cape

Atlantic Cape will be paying tribute to veterans who have served our country and to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice fighting for our freedom.

Beginning on Monday, Nov. 14 through Wednesday, Nov. 30, the college will have “empty tables” on display to symbolize veterans who have gone missing during times of war. They are commonly known as POWs (Prisoners of War) or MIAs (Missing in Action). To many, they are known as Brothers. The tables will be located in J Lobby and STEM Lobby of the Mays Landing Campus; the first-floor lobby of the Atlantic City Campus; and the first-floor lobby of the Cape May County Campus.

On each table, which will be displayed at all three campuses, will be various items that represent different meanings. A poster will be on or alongside the tables to explain what each item signifies. We invite you and the students you work with to visit these symbolic tables and recognize those who have sacrificed for our freedom.

On behalf of the Veterans Advisory Committee, we thank you for your patronage.
