NISSWA -- They're the men and women who aren't able to belong to area American Legion and VFW clubs, march in parades or perform community service.
And at the Nisswa American Legion, its members are honoring those POWs/MIAs by hanging a large framed print titled, "Still Bleeding," in remembrance of those missing soldiers.
Wayne Ebert, owner of Ideal Picture Frame in St. Paul and a member of the Nisswa Sons of the American Legion, donated the framed print to the Nisswa Legion. Ebert is a Nisswa seasonal resident.
The framed print is valued at $1,600. Ebert framed a similar print that was presented to the national Legion commander on a visit to Minnesota this year. That's when he got the idea to do the same for the Nisswa American Legion.
Nisswa Legion Commander Gil Ponsness said the picture will be mounted in the main meeting room at the Legion next week.
"To get it framed like this, I think it's very nice," said Ponsness.
