BIG RUN — Big Run Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 9044 and the Ladies Auxiliary hosted an event on Saturday at the Big Run War Memorial to recognize National POW/MIA Recognition Day, as well as to commemorate the life of a fellow veteran: James E. Soliday.

In so doing, VFW unveiled a display dedicated to Soliday, which will now stand as a permanent fixture in the Big Run War Memorial.

"Jim Soliday was a man of action," said Post Commander James Pallone in his welcome address, "and tonight, Post 9044 looks at its missing comrade as 'missing in action.'"
