TAMPA — While empty chairs at Tropicana Field often outnumber those that are occupied, one will remain permanently vacant f — to honor prisoners of war and troops still missing in action.
The POW/MIA National Chair of Honor will be unveiled Saturday before the Rays’ game against the Houston Astros.
The chair will serve “as a permanent reminder of the nearly 92,000 Americans who have gone missing or become prisoners of war while serving their country,” according to a release from the office of U.S. Rep. David Jolly, R-Indian Shores.
