Cumberland County, NC – Heroes Homecoming, a county-wide initiative developed to recognize and appreciate active duty and veterans for their courage and sacrifice, will honor the medical military and first responders who were on the front line during the COVID-19 pandemic. This year’s Heroes Homecoming IX will run from November 4 through November 11.  All events will be announced at the end of August.

Heroes Homecoming IX will once again honor service members who are still listed as Prisoner of War (POW)/Missing in Action (MIA) by spearheading an effort to get Missing Man tables set up at places of business throughout Cumberland County.  “The organizations that are part of Heroes Homecoming agree that we must not forget those who were a POW or who are still MIA,” says Angie Brady, Fayetteville Area Convention & Visitors Bureau (FACVB) Director of Tourism Marketing. “We have 180 displays – 170 Missing Man Table Kits and 10 Honor Chairs - to lend to local businesses for this important effort.”  

The Heroes Homecoming committee will provide all materials needed, except the table, chair, salt, and saltshaker. Participating businesses need to rope off or clearly indicate their table display or Honor Chair is for display only. Each Missing Man table or Honor Chair shall be displayed from November 1 through November 30, 2021.
