Recently, I had the honor and privilege of joining Representative Donald H. Wong, State Representative Steve Xiarhos, State Representative Jessica Giannino, Essex County Sheriff's Department and Sheriff Kevin F. Coppinger Committee for a ceremony in recognition of POW-MIA National Recognition Day in our Middleton community.
Gold Star Father State Representative Steve Xiarhos was the guest speaker and shared his story of losing his son, Marine Nicholas Xiarhos. It was a touching tribute and moving ceremony.
This National POW/MIA Recognition Day ceremony, and so many like it across the Commonwealth and our great nation, honor those who were held captive and returned, as well as, those who remain missing.
