U.S. Navy Seaman David Parker, a hospitalman at the Robert M. Casey Medical and Dental Clinic, lights a candle in honor and reverence of all men and women prisoners of war and missing in action from all U.S. military services during the 118th Hospital Corpsman Ball at Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni, Japan. A slice of lemon symbolizes the prisoners’ bitter fate if never brought home, while salt on the plate represents the tears shed by family members awaiting the prisoners’ return home and the glass turned upside down represents the prisoners’ inability to toast everyone else. The burning candle embodies the frailty of a prisoner alone standing up to their oppressors, while the red ribbon is a symbol of those who would not return home, and the rose implies the hope of the family members who await their return.
