National POW/MIA Recognition Day is observed today, September 17th (commemorated the third Friday in September). It honors those who were prisoners of war (POWs) and those who are still missing in action (MIA). It is most associated with those who were POWs during the Vietnam War.

The Mission of the American Heritage Museum

The American Heritage Museum seeks to engage, educate, entertain and enlighten its audiences in the history of our military and veterans through a chronologically arranged series of exhibits and educational interpretation. We do this through a focus on three themes:

The history of the American fight for independence and the preservation of democracy through history.

The role of the American citizen soldier in the battles fought.

And the role of technology and innovation in the defense of these servicemen and servicewomen.

The American Heritage Museum is additionally committed to the development of living history events within Massachusetts to provide inspiration to our future generations.
