Dedication ceremony in Rochester


ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC-DT) -- Residents are remembering America's prisoners of war and those still missing in action by attending a special event.

Dozens gathered at a dedication ceremony at Soldier's field in Rochester Monday afternoon.

A bench bearing, in part, the words "you are not forgotten" was dedicated in memory our country's POWs and those MIA.

For many it is a moving event. David Gustafson, MN Director of POW/MIA, says, "There are families out there who have had no closure. That's kind of the motto. Remembered yes, forgotten never."

After the ceremony, a lunch was served and the money raised will be used for Honor Flight.
