TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The third Friday in September is National Prisoner of War/Missing in Action Remembrance Day, a day to honor those who risked their lives protecting our country and who never came home.

At a ceremony Friday at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, attendees paid tribute.

They set a table for one, symbolizing the frailty of one prisoner alone against his oppressors.

Among the speakers was former POW John Swett, who was captured and detained during World War II while serving in Germany until his camp was liberated by General George S. Patton's third army in 1945.
