The POW*MIA Ribbon Button shows concern for those in the military who have been taken as prisoners of war or have been listed as missing in action. During the Vietnam War, the POW*MIA design was created in 1972 by Newt Heisley. POW wife Evelyn Grubb campaigned for this cause to the government and local organizations. In 1988, National POW*MIA Recognition Day was passed by Congress. In 1990, Congress passed US Public Law 101-355 recognizing it as a symbol of our Nation's commitment to resolving the fate of those who were/are prisoners of war and missing and unaccounted for in action in Southeast Asia and all American wars. Honor those who are or have been a prisoner of war or are missing in action with our POW*MIA Button. You are not forgotten! Choose in two sizes and three different types of backing--pin back, badge back, or magnetic.
- These metal buttons are covered with a durable mylar film that has a bright finish and helps protect the design from scratches.
- Three options to choose from:
- Pin Back: Great for adding some flair to your outfit, backpack, hoodie or suspenders (why not).
- Badge Back: Name badge backs with powerful Neodymium magnets have the added benefit of not damaging clothing.
- Magnet Back: A thick 60mil magnetic backing makes this option great for refrigerator or any metal surface.
- Over All Dimensions: 2 1/4" Dia. or 3" Dia.
