On April 16 at noon, the Rolling Thunder Chapter 1 Motorcycle Club held a ceremony to honor all prisoners of war and missing in action veterans from all wars. The ceremony recognized all branches of the service. This was held at the VFW Post 8346, Lake Wateree, where the POW-MIA flag is flown under the American flag daily.

After the ceremony, 52 old faded and torn American flags were disposed of properly by burning and not touching the ground.

At the conclusion, lunch was served to about 100 veterans and guests.
