Commonplace among military functions is the Missing In Action/Prisoner of War table. The vase that holds the red, white and yellow roses represent those killed in action, those who have returned and those who are missing, respectively. The white table cloth underneath symbolizes the purity of an American service member’s intentions when responding to their country’s call to arms. The Missing in Action/Prisoner of War table was prominently set at the front of the banquet room for the 2013 Outstanding Airman of the Year Banquet (OAY) held March 9 at the JW Marriott Tucson Starr Pass Resort and Spa.
