POW*MIA AWARENESS RALLY ASSOCIATION POCATELLO UNIT PATCH
The military ribbons displayed at the above of the unit patch represent the
following: (from left to right)
- Kuwait Liberation Medal ribbon (1st Gulf War)
- Korean Service Medal ribbon (Korean War)
- World War I Victory Medal ribbon (WWI)
- POW Medal ribbon (awarded to all POWs)
- World War II Victory Medal ribbon (WWII)
- Vietnam Service Medal ribbon (Vietnam)
- Global War on Terrorism Service Medal ribbon (Iraq/Afghanistan)
These ribbons represent the various conflicts that have claimed both POWs and
MIAs from American families since the early 20th century.
The Purple Mountains in the top- center of the patch signify the location of the
Pocatello unit of the POW*MIA Awareness Rally Association as being in the heart
of the Rocky Mountains. It is derived from the popular patriotic song “America
The bold, blood red letters of “Pocatello, Idaho” on the center of the patch lets all
who see us know exactly where we are from and who we represent.
Finally, the official POW*MIA flag design featuring a white disk bearing a
black silhouette, along with the bust of a man’s head pointing down, a watch
tower with a guard on patrol and a strand of barbed wire are the universal and
international representation of the overall POW*MIA issue.
This patch belongs to the Association. By accepting it, one agrees to wear the
patch with honor and respect for the organization. Please don’t wear other
patches with the “F” word or other derogatory symbols/comments. Use your
own common sense.
The Pocatello POW*MIA Awareness Rally Corp held its Annual Appreciation Dinner on Friday, August 24, 2012 at the Old Town Pavilion. It was a great opportunity for us to say “Thank You” and “You are so appreciated” to our sponsors and volunteers. We cannot do it without you!
Your support and commitment to us made it possible for us to present the following checks: $12,000 to the POW/MIA National League of Families, $4,000 to our Idaho State Veterans Home here in Pocatello and $100 to CASA. The dinner was also an opportunity for us to thank the leadership team of 2012 for a “Job Well Done” and say Best Wishes and Good Luck to the new 2013 Leadership Team.
