Pictured, from left: Chris Giles, Director of Veteran Services at Lander University; Nick Gebo, Student Veterans of America president and member of the South Carolina National Guard; and Jordan House, ROTC Cadet and member of the South Carolina National Guard, present a special chair and plaque in honor of all POWs and MIAs during a ceremony at Lander’s Doug Spears Field.  

Lander Athletics and Lander University partnered with The Rolling Thunder Chapters of South Carolina to present and dedicate a Chair of Honor for all POWs and MIAs in two ceremonies at the softball and baseball stadiums on Saturday, March 31.

The first ceremony took place at Doug Spears Field, just prior to the Bearcats’ softball games against North Georgia. The second ceremony was held at Dolny Stadium before the baseball double-header against Augusta.

Veterans were invited to the field to participate in the ceremonies, and members of The Rolling Thunder raised a POW/MIA flag at each stadium.

The Rolling Thunder, Inc., POW/MIA Chair of Honor Program is intended to support Rolling Thunder's main mission by bringing daily reminders of the POW/MIA issue to cities and towns big and small across the nation. A POW/MIA chair in any location is to remain perpetually empty to help people remember that, even though our soldiers are not here, there is still a space for them.
