Opportunity for ALL Together to show “Let Us Not Forget” is the code we live by.

We are urgently seeking next-of-kin of New Hampshire POWs who died in captivity during WWII or the Korean War. 31 of 61 have been contacted. If you are a family member or know the family of a POW who so died, please get in touch with me.
