                      RECOGNIZING POW/MIA SOLDIERS

  (Mr. GUEST asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 
minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)
  Mr. GUEST. Since World War II, 138,103 American soldiers have been 
listed as prisoners of war, and 83,114 American soldiers have been 
listed as missing in action. National POW/MIA Recognition Day was 
created to honor the sacrifice of the men and women who were imprisoned 
during wartime and to remember those brave soldiers who never returned 
to American soil.
  Today, we thank our heavenly Father for returning home those American 
soldiers who found themselves confined on foreign soil, and we bow our 
heads in prayer and remembrance of those still missing.
  I ask the Members of this body and American citizens everywhere to 
include these soldiers, their families, and their communities in your 
prayers and to join me in thanks for the freedoms and liberties we 
enjoy every day because of their sacrifice.
