St. Thomas Air Force ROTC students begin 32nd annual 24-hour vigil for POW/MIAs

In a University of St. Thomas quad Sunday evening, a group of Air Force ROTC students began a 24-hour vigil for the thousands of U.S. Military service members that were prisoners of war or are missing in action.

The vigil was coordinated by the Richard E. Fleming Arnold Air Society Squadron.

This is the 32nd consecutive year the AFROTC has held the vigil at St. Thomas, which includes a slow march.

According to a release from St. Thomas, the slow march “is an opportunity for cadets to reflect on those who have served and continue to serve our country.”

The event will run until Monday evening at 5:15 p.m. on the lower quad of the University.
