The State Capitol now hosts a new memorial dedicated to honoring all the Delawareans that have been listed as missing in action (MIAs), taken as prisoners of war (POWs), or killed in armed conflicts.

There are two related components. The first is a symbolically empty "Chair of Honor." The second is "Delaware's Roll of Honor: A Partial Listing of the Delaware Heroes Who have Given Their Lives and Their Freedom in Defense of Their State and Their Nation."

Located on the second floor of Legislative Hall in Dover, the new memorial was dedicated with a recent ceremony held on National P.O.W./M.I.A. Recognition Day (September 18th), which Rep. Briggs King had the honor of attending.
