During our Khaki Ball we learned about proper etiquette at a formal dinner and the reason behind Khaki Balls.
Abigail explained the symbolism of the POW/MIA Table.
The table is set for our prisoners of war and those missing in action.
The chair is empty because they are not with us.
The white table cloth reminds us of the purity of their actions to respond to their countries call to fight for freedom.
The lone candle reminds us of the frailty of one prisoner alone.
The black ribbon reminds us of those who will not be coming home.
The single rose reminds us of the loved ones and family waiting.
The lemon reminds us of the bitterness of their situation.
The salt reminds of us their families tears.
Remember those whom we depended on in battle and fought for our freedom.
