Team Robins will remember and honor the sacrifice of America's prisoners of war and those missing in action during the Robins POW/MIA organization's annual recognition ceremony Sept. 17 at 3 p.m. in the Museum of Aviation's Hangar One.

The ceremony's guest speaker will be retired Col. Querin "Quin" Herlick, a U.S. Army aviator, Vietnam Veteran and former prisoner of war held captive in 1969 during the Vietnam War.

According to event coordinators, a 24-hour Vigil Run will kick off the recognition beginning at 3 p.m. Sept. 16 at the museum. 

Time slots are currently available for the run, which invites participants to sign up in 15 minute or longer increments. The goal is to keep the baton/flag moving for the entire 24-hour period of time leading up to the ceremony.
