To honor our POW/MIA veterans this Memorial Day, today’s tablescape is a very special one – The Missing Man Table. The Missing Man Table will be displayed at our Patriot’s Palooza Memorial Day party, along with the attached printable, so our guests can honor and toast to our lost service members, give a moment of silence or prayer, and teach their children about the sacrifices of our heroes.
This table is reserved to honor our missing comrades in arms.
The table is round – to show our everlasting concern for our missing men.
The tablecloth is white – symbolizing the purity of their motives when answering the call to duty.
The single red rose, displayed in a vase, reminds us of the life of each of the missing and their loved ones and friends of these Americans who keep the faith, awaiting answers.
The vase is tied with a red ribbon, symbol of our continued determination to account for our missing.
A slice of lemon on the bread plate is to remind us of the bitter fate of those captured and missing in a foreign land.
A pinch of salt symbolizes the tears endured by those missing and their families who seek answers.
The Bible represents the strength gained through faith to sustain those lost from our country, founded as one nation under God.
The glass is inverted – to symbolize their inability to share this evening’s toast.
The chair is empty – they are missing.
Let us now raise our glasses in a toast to honor America’s POW/MIAs and to the success of our efforts to account for them.
