The third POW-MIA-OREE event will be held Saturday at the South Florida National Cemetery.

The event is at 8:30 a.m.

The names of all soldiers buried at the cemetery will be read aloud.

Also, custom challenge coins will be placed on each headstone to remind their families that “their soldier has not been forgotten,” a news release says.

The event is in honor of National POW-MIA Remembrance Day. The cemetery is at 6501 S. State Road 7 in suburban Boynton Beach.
