POW/MIA Memorial Highway signThe Montana POW/MIA Awareness Association maintains flags for each of the 55 POW/MIA personnel from Montana. Each of these flags are embroidered with the name, branch of service, and the conflict in which each of these missing veterans served. On holidays related to veterans, the flags are placed on light poles along both sides of the Helena end of Highway 287 which was dedicated as the Montana POW/MIA Memorial Highway. The flags are flown from dawn to dusk to honor the Montana personnel and to remember and raise awareness of all POW/MIA personnel and related issues.

These are the holidays and events on which we fly the flags to recognize these personnel:

Armed Forces Day Memorial Day
D Day Flag Day
Independence Day Ride to Remember Day
POW/MIA Recognition Day Veterans Day
Pearl Harbor Day

We are always looking for individuals interested in posting the POW/MIA flags. 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.

Also, these flags take a beating from the wind and need to be replaced on occasion. We are seeking sponsors and donations for replacement flags. We will be posting several options for sponsorship and donations soon. Please check back if you are interested in supporting us in this way.

If you are interested in helping with the flag detail, would like information on sponsoring a flag or making a donation, or would like more information about our group or the August ride, please visit our "About Us" page and complete the form or you can simply send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots.
