SMC honors POW/MIA; marks Air Force’s 68th Birthday with 24-hour torch relay
As the sun sets in the West with 54 miles behind them, the POW/MIA torch relay team arrives on the grounds of the Space and Missile Systems Center's Schriever Space Complex at Los Angeles Air Force Base in El Segundo, Calif. Another 100 miles will be pounded out overnight on the running track as each runner executed the same mission – ensuring the torch remained lit to represent the nation’s resolve; moving it ever forward to show the promise to those missing warriors and their families.
