MISSING MAN TABLE

July 4. 2015

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.
