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.

Ritchie stands a symbol of the U.S. Army upright against the wind Friday during the ceremony.
Gerid Ardwin, a patrolman first class with the El Dorado Police Department and a member of the Honor Guard for the Arkansas Chiefs of Police Association, plays taps Friday in front of the memorial for veterans of the Spanish-American War at the end of the ceremony.
CORRECTION

An earlier version of this story had the wrong day of the ceremony. The ceremony took place Thursday.
