I simply could not resist making some graphics
to honor that cause...

If you're not military or a veteran, you may have never seen a "Missing Man Table & Honors Ceremony". The Submarine banquets we've been to have always had one of these set up in a very visible spot. Here is what they stand for:
MISSING MAN TABLE & HONORS CEREMONY
NATIONAL LEAGUE OF POW/MIA FAMILIES
The table is round -- to show our everlasting concern for our missing men & women.
The tablecloth is white -- symbolizing the purity of their motives when answering the call to duty.
The single red rose, displayed in a vase, reminds us of the life of each of the missing, and the[ir] loved ones and friends of these Americans who keep the faith, awaiting answers.
The vase is tied with a red ribbon, symbol of our continued determination to account for our missing.
A slice of lemon on the bread plate is to remind us of the bitter fate of those captured and missing in a foreign land.
A pinch of salt symbolizes the tears endured by those missing and their families who seek answers.
The Bible represents the strength gained through faith to sustain those lost from our country, founded as one nation under God.
The glass is inverted -- to symbolize their inability to share this evening's [morning's/day's] toast.
The chair is empty -- they are missing.
Let us now raise our water glasses in a toast to honor America's POW/MIAs and to the success of our efforts to account for them.
