DENNIS ODA / JUNE 23
                                There will be no audience to view today’s annual POW/MIA ceremony honoring those who were held captive in war and those who remain missing. Instead of taking place at Punchbowl, the ceremony will occur at the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam. Earlier this summer the agency held a repatriation ceremony honoring 147 fallen South Korean servicemen who fought during the Korean War.
