The Rock River Valley Chapter of VietNow’s annual POW/MIA Christmas tree lighting and vigil was held Saturday at Veterans Memorial Park in Dixon. As in years past, the theme was “I’ll Be Home for Christmas, If Only in My Dreams.” The group lit bulbs for missing Vietnam, Korean War and World War II veterans from Illinois, and members of the audience read their names aloud. The tree will remain lighted throughout the holidays. The remembrance table also was set, which represents a family’s feelings about facing empty chairs at the holiday table.
