Yuma honors POW/MIA day

Today is POW/ MIA day and local veterans and supporters got together to recognize the fallen at an annual breakfast.

About 50 people paid their respects today at Yuma’s American Legion Post 19.

The day remembers prisoners of war and those missing in action.

The legion will next have a Veterans Day parade.

This year, the theme is welcome home Vietnam veterans.
