Honoring the fallen/missing: El Dorado Eight & Forty Salon 940 Ladies’ Veterans Organization members Diana Scritchfield, left, and Pat Ritchie, right, place a marker over an empty folding chair Thursday during a Prisoners of War (POW)/Missing in Action (MIA) ceremony in front of the Union County Courthouse. The ceremony, which the organization hopes to make an annual event, served to honor those service members in all branches of the military who were held as prisoners of war or went missing in action.
