In commemoration of National POW/MIA Recognition Day – held annually on the third Friday of September – Governor Jan Brewer today issued a proclamation calling upon all Arizonans to pay respect to our nation’s Prisoners of War and those Missing in Action.

“Today, we pause to recognize the brave men and women of the United States Armed Forces, paying special tribute to the service and sacrifices of our nation’s Prisoners of War, those Missing in Action and the families pained by unanswered questions.

“Americans are eternally indebted to the brave heroes who have relinquished their personal freedom and who have answered the call to service, but have not returned.  Let us honor them and always remember our men and women in uniform who defend liberty for their fellow citizens. Because no words can fully express our gratitude – and because we can never repay our service members for their extraordinary courage and devotion to country – we must ensure their memories are forever honored.

“I ask that my fellow Arizonans please join me in prayer for our nation’s Prisoners of War and Missing in Action, and their families, as well as for all who sacrifice in the name of our national and personal safety.”

The Marana capital improvements improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

The town of Marana is looking at ways to do capital improvements to the oldest neighborhoods in Marana. Over the next few months the town will survey older neighborhoods and see what amenities they need and form a plan to make sure neighborhoods have paved roads, sidewalks, adequate drainage, lighting and even pocket parks. “We want to make sure that every neighborhood has a base standard for infrastructure,” said Marana Town Manager Gilbert Davidson. The improvements are expected to take years to complete as Marana finds the best plan of action to complete the projects and fund the improvements. Do you think this is a good idea?

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
