MISSING MAN TABLE

July 4. 2015

Photo by SK Bob Pelletier

The Missing Man Table, also known as the Fallen Comrade Table, is a semi-official place of honor in some dining facilities of the U.S. armed forces in memory of fallen, missing, or imprisoned military service-members. The table serves as the focal point of ceremonial remembrance, originally growing out of US concern of the Vietnam War POW/MIA issue Beyond permanent displays in dining facilities, the missing man table is traditionally part of military dining-in ceremonies and service balls. When presented in a dining-in or service ball, a narration given to the audience explains the symbolism of each item. 

The Missing Man Table will be set at every Assembly 3272 event.

D DAY


 

During the 24 hour period of June 6, 1944, 57,500 Americans landed at Utah and Normandy beaches (4,696 died that day); 21,400 Canadians landed (1,204 died); 53,815 British landed (2,543 died).  In addition 23,000 airborne troops parachuted behind enemy lines that day.  In total 155,715 Allied troops landed in France on D-Day June 6.

There are three Medal of Honor awardees buried at the American Cemetery in Normandy.  Listed on each marble cross is the name, rank, and death date; however, (unlike the other crosses) the details of MOH crosses are the only ones highlighted with a special gold paint and with red-white-blue flowers at the base. 

One of these 3 MOH awardees at Normandy is Brig. Gen. Theodore Roosevelt, Jr., son of President Roosevelt who died of a heart attack about a week after D-Day.

A PROUD HONOR GUARD MEMBER

STAR ASSEMBLY AWARD

I took the opportunity to proudly participate again this morning with fellow representatives from the Knights, Lions, VFW, American Legion and the Georgetown Fire Department along Hwy 17 North (Church St.) for our annual recognition/memorial for those 2,997 victims who lost their lives from the 19 terrorists who overtook the 4 flights back on September 11, 2001.   It further recognizes the 6000 others who were injured and the many other First Responders and ordinary citizens who were able to save so many lives.   If you take time to Google 9/11, there is a myriad of very interesting information about those flights and all we now know about that Infamous Day. This local event along Hwy. 17 in Georgetown has been sponsored for the last several years by the Lions Club, with the support of many other organizations, on September 11th each year since the attack. The Honor Guard from our Georgetown- Pawleys Island Patriotic Order of the Knights, the Philip Grant Assembly of the 4th Degree, has participated each year since its inception.

 

Timelines:  8:46 a.m.: Flight 511 crashed into the North Tower in New York City;

                  9:03 am.:  Flight 175 crashed into the South Tower in New York City;

                  9:37 a.m.: Flight 93 crashed into the Pentagon in Washington, D.C.;

                10:03 a.m.: Flight 77 is crashed into a field in Pennsylvania by passengers who overtook the terrorists and sacrificed their lives to stop this flight that was destined to crash into the White House!

 

LEAST WE FORGET!!!

 

Please take some time TODAY to thank God for the many blessings we still are able to enjoy in this FREE United States and to PRAY for continued blessings and healings to the individuals and families who were most directly affected by this act of terror.

Colin Peterson,
Faithful Purser
Philip Grant Assembly 3272
