The Charleston Battery paid tribute to prisoners of war (POW) and soldiers missing in action (MIA) at MUSC Health Stadium on Saturday, June 8, 2019, for Military Appreciation Night.
The night kicked off with an exciting game ball delivery via helicopter thanks to MUSC MEDUCARE Medical Transport Service. We had the honor of having The National Anthem performed by Captain Time from Joint Base Charleston to start the evening. The POW/MIA Chair of Honor Dedication took place during halftime with a Color Guard presentation. The chair remains roped off and always unoccupied to help people remember that even though our soldiers are not here, there is still a space for them at the stadium. We also honored match day Hometown Hero, Mr. Robert Floyd Hennessee, a WWII Veteran, and Purple Heart recipient.
Thanks to Akima (www.akima.com) for sponsoring both Military Appreciation Night and the Battery Hometown Hero.
