For those who have passed since our last reunion we have begun to set up a table in their honor. "The Empty chair": the missing and fallen aren't present.
The table is round to represent everlasting concern on the part of the survivors for their missing loved ones.
The tablecloth is white, symbolic of the purity of their intentions to respond to their country’s call to arms.
A slice of lemon on the bread plate: represents the bitter fate of the missing.
Salt sprinkled on the bread plate: symbolic of the countless fallen tears of families as they wait.
Inverted glass: represents the fact that the missing and fallen cannot partake.
