8 unexpected and delightful ways to pass time at airports across the United States Some hubs go the extra mile to make a good impression: a free ice-skating rink at DEN, a movie theater at PDX, an eight-hole putting green in Palm Beach. More airports have added yoga studios or rooms in recent years, including both Chicago O’Hare and Chicago Midway, Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, San Francisco International Airport, Miami International Airport, and Burlington International Airport. Most include equipment such as mats and, also important, a private space to breathe deeply away from the masses. -Washington Post

POW / MIA Recognition Day

When : Third Friday of September

POW/MIA Recognition Day is a day of remembrance and hope for the speedy and safe return of American Prisoners of War, and those still Missing in Action. It also seeks the return of the remains of fallen soldiers.

The first official commemoration of POW/MIAs was July 18, 1979. It was the result of resolutions passed in Congress. The first national ceremony was held on this date. Over the next several years, it was held in varying dates of the year. Finally, in 1986, The National League of Families proposed the third Friday in September as a day to recognize and remember POW/MIAs. This date was selected, as it is not associated with any wars. Each year, the president of the United States issues a proclamation on this day.

Did you know? Federal law requires the POW/MIA flag to be flown on the following days:

Armed Forces Day, May 16

Memorial Day, May 25

Flag Day, June 14

Independence Day, July 4

POW/MIA Day, 3rd Friday of September

Veterans Day, Nov. 11
