Westarea Elementary is honoring veterans and missing service members by displaying the Chair of Honor. Recently, Dr. Backman commented, "As a Purple Star school, Westarea Elementary knows the important sacrifices made by service members on a daily basis. We are humbled by the opportunity to display the Chair of Honor." The Chair of Honor represents not only the missing service members but it serves as a symbol to service members & their families that the United States will never forget their loved ones and will continue to work tirelessly until every man is brought home. The empty Chair serves as a memorial to those who served in the military of our great nation but have not returned home to us. They are Prisoners of War.
