BRANDENBURG, Ky. (AP) — A newly formed POW/MIA Flag Guard in central Kentucky is working to honor Kentucky soldiers who never returned from war.

Vine Grove resident Loretta Sherod helped form the group. Sherod told The News-Enterprise the aim is to help people remember those who have never been found after combat.

The group plans to honor Lt. John Douglas Hale and other veterans who were lost and presumed dead, but never found, during a ceremony at Brandenburg Riverfront Park on Sept. 20. The day is National POW/MIA Recognition Day.

Hale vanished in Vietnam when his helicopter was shot down. His remains were never found.
