Why we do it
Montana POW/MIA Awareness Association is an all-volunteer organization. Many of us are veterans – all of us are proud citizens who present ourselves in a professional manner. One of our greatest privileges is to honor, respect, and remember the heroes who honored this country with their unfailing service. To do this, we stand a flag line holding American flags. Standing a flag line is a privilege we take very seriously.
When requested, the Association attends funerals of fallen Service Members, Veterans, and First Responders – Law Enforcement, Fire, and EMT personnel – to show respect and honor for the service and sacrifice of the fallen and to acknowledge the sacrifice and loss suffered by their families. The service we offer is called an Honor Mission. An Honor Mission could include any or all of the following services when requested by the family of the fallen hero:
- - stand a flag line at the funeral home or church
- - motorcycle escort (weather permitting)
- - participate in a funeral procession
- - stand a flag line at the burial/interment site.
We are always looking for individuals interested in participating in Honor Missions. You do not have to be a veteran or even a biker, just someone who thinks that POW/MIA issues are important and would like to participate.
Honor. Respect. Remember.
