The stadium-style seat features the MIA/POW symbol on the back rest and displays the phrase “You Are Not Forgotten.”

Local veterans purchased the memorial with the help of local donations from Southern Mass Credit Union and Fairhaven Lumber. The chair is on display in the town hall lobby for all to visit.
