Terry Campus Dedicates POW/MIA Chair of Honor

The Delaware Tech Terry Campus dedicated a POW/MIA Chair of Honor on November 6, 2017, joining the Rolling Thunder® Inc. POW/MIA Chair of Honor Program, which is intended to bring daily reminders of POW/MIA issues.

The dedication ceremony featured remarks by William R. “Bill” Farley, Chairman of the Delaware Commission of Veterans Affairs, and a 21-gun salute from a Dover Air Force Base Honor Guard. The unveiling of the chair was performed by Brig. Gen. Ernest G. Talbert Jr. and Dr. Lester Link.

Dr. Link, a recently retired Delaware Tech employee and Vietnam veteran, initiated the discussion on having a chair dedicated on campus and he generously covered the cost of installation and display signage.

The chair, donated by Hussey Seating, is black with the POW/MIA logo on it and is to remain perpetually empty to help people remember that even though our soldiers are not here, there is still a space for them. Although the ceremony took place at the center of campus, the chair will be permanently placed in the vestibule of the school’s Terry Building.
