FRANKFORT, Ky. (WTVQ) – Governor Andy Beshear is expected to sign a proclamation Monday he says honors prisoners of war and those who are missing in action.
The order will ensure the flag representing the two groups will fly permanently at the state Capitol.
“Every day we honor the sacrifices of Kentuckians and Americans who are still prisoners, missing or unaccounted for,” Beshear said in a statement. “To show our daily commitment to these heroes and their families, the POW/MIA flag will be flown permanently at the Capitol.”
The proclamation means Kentucky is one of the first states to fly the POW/MIA flag every day at its Capitol.
