POW-MIA Flag Raising Ceremony to Be Held at Westgate Lakes

January 12, 2012 (Orlando, FL) – Westgate Lakes Resort & Spa will be the site of a POW-MIA flag raising ceremony held by Rolling Thunder® Inc. Florida Chapters 1, 6 & 8. The event will take place at 11:00 am on Saturday, January 14, at the main entrance to the resort located at 10,000 Turkey Lake Rd., Orlando, FL 32819. The observance will feature a color guard, singing of our national anthem and speakers including William Arcuri, an ex-Viet Nam POW. The event will culminate with the raising of the POW-MIA flag. Several dignitaries and elected officials will also be in attendance. The public is invited.

Westgate has twenty-seven resort locations throughout the United States in Central Florida, Florida; Las Vegas, Nevada; Park City, Utah; Miami Beach, Florida; Gatlinburg, Tennessee; River Ranch, Florida; Daytona Beach, Florida; Williamsburg, Virginia; Branson, Missouri; Mesa, Arizona; Myrtle Beach, South Carolina; and Tunica, Mississippi. Flag raising ceremonies have previously been held at several Westgate Resort locations across the country and more are planned at each Westgate property during 2012.

Incorporated in 1995, Rolling Thunder®, Inc. is a class 501(c)(4) non-profit organization with over 90 chartered chapters throughout the United States and members abroad. While many members of Rolling Thunder are veterans and many ride motorcycles, neither qualification is a prerequisite. Rolling Thunder members are old and young, men and women, veterans and non-veterans. All are united in the cause to bring full accountability for Prisoners Of War (POW) and Missing In Action (MIA) of all wars, reminding the government, the media and the public by our watchwords: “We Will Not Forget.”

“As both a veteran and a proud American I am honored to support to the mission of Rolling Thunder® Inc.,”
remarked David Siegel, President and CEO of Westgate Resorts. “We believe that it is our duty as a corporate
citizen to support the veterans, POWs, MIAs and their families who have given so much for our country.”
