POW/MIA chairs coming to Sussex Central High School to honor soldiers

POW/MIA chairs coming to Sussex...

GEORGETOWN, Del. - One high school in Sussex County is honoring soldiers who were prisoners of war or missing in action. 

Sussex Central High School is adding a chair to the their football stadium. 

The significance of the chair is actually representing an empty seat for the solider who's waiting to come home. 

It's all apart of a student's effort in becoming Miss Delaware. 47 ABC caught up with Rebecca Bristow, who says she has a family of veterans and wants to give back to the veteran community.

Bristow says, "I know it's going to be such a great addition to our school hopefully a learning experience for a lot of kids who are uneducated on what POW/MIA means and hopefully we can honor the fallen soldiers."

We are told veterans will unveil the chair in a ceremony during homecoming week in the next coming weeks. The ceremony will take place on the field. 

From there, they will permanently place the chair in the stands and it will be roped off.
