    You may notice this small table here in a place of honor. It is set for one.
    This table is our way of symbolizing that members of our profession of arms are
    missing from our midst. They are commonly call P.O.W.'s or M.I.A.'s, we call them brothers.

    They are unable to be with us this evening and so we remember them.

    This table set for one is small... it symbolizes the frailty of one prisoner against his oppressors.

    The table cloth is white... it symbolizes the purity of their intentions to respond to their country's call to arms.

    The single rose displayed in a vase reminds us of the families and loved ones of our
    comrades in arms who keep faith awaiting their return.

    The yellow ribbon tied so prominently on the vase is reminiscent of the yellow
    ribbon worn on the lapel and breasts of thousands who bear witness to their
    unyielding determination to demand a proper accounting for our missing.

    A slice of lemon is on the bread plate... to remind us of their bitter fate.

    There is salt upon the bread plate... symbolic of the family's tears as they wait.

    The glass is inverted... they cannot toast with us tonight.

    The chair is empty... they are not here.

    Remember... all of you who served with them and called them comrades,
    who depended on their might and aid,
    and relied on them... for surely...
    they have not forsaken you.
