“Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.” 

  Kahlil Gibran

Freedom is a liberty we often take for granted in our great nation. In our pursuits of prestige, honor, and happiness we forget the sacrifices those before us made that allow us to enjoy such sentiments. Today GISinc would like to take a moment to remember all the brave soldiers who have been detained as either prisoners of war or missing in action; individuals who were denied their freedom and proven time again how tragedy did not shake their great character but rather molded it. In honor of National POW/MIA Recognition Day we have created a Story Map highlighting some notable POWs. 

See the Story Map.
