USPS: Nov. 11 is Veterans Day – Postal Facilities Must Fly the POW-MIA flag

Los Angeles Processing and Distribution Center Supervisor Roseanne Sousa and Mail Handler Carl Ball hold U.S. and POW-MIA flags recently.

Flag notice. Sunday, Nov. 11, is Veterans Day, one of six days each year that Postal Service facilities are required to fly the POW-MIA flag.

Because Veterans Day is a designated USPS holiday, the POW-MIA flag should be raised Saturday, Nov. 10.

The flag honors the sacrifices made by members of the armed forces held as prisoners of war or listed as missing in action.

The POW-MIA flag must fly below the U.S. flag.

For more information, refer to the Postal Service’s online guidelines on U.S. flag display and maintenance, as well as the requirements for displaying the POW-MIA flag.
