(WASHINGTON, DC) - About two weeks ago I had called Lamar Advertising in York, PA and spoke with Thomas A. Loper, knowing that some other Lamar sales offices throughout the US have been generous enough to donate digital sign board space to help promote the fact that we have a live POW out their that most Americans don't know about.

Tom knew about Bowe and was more that willing to help out. He now has Bowe signs up in Lancaster and York PA.

Then I had asked him if he could put a sign up in the Philadelphia area. And now thanks to Bryan Koegel / Reading Sales Manager there is another Bowe sign up on the PA turnpike near Trevose, PA. Attached images are from Lancaster and Trevose PA.

So One BIG thank you to Lamar Advertising. Why don't you try to contact a Lamar Advertising sales office in your area?

    Patrick J. Hughes served proudly in the United States Marine Corps from July 1966 through July 1968 and in the Republic of South Vietnam from January 1967 through February 1968 with Marine Air Group 12.

    Patrick is affiliated with Rolling Thunder® Inc. National, Marine Corps League Upper Darby Detachment #884, MODD, Vietnam Veterans of America, Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States, American Legion, and Bikers Against Child Abuse.

    What Patrick does best, is building a photo story. He’s not interested in just snapping photographs, he wants to build a story that no one will forget. And in building this story, well that’s when Patrick really gets to work.

    Taking what started as an idea, Patrick skillfully crafts what he has captured in the camera into a one-of-a-kind visual creation that grabs hold of your imagination in a truly remarkable way. Telling stories, that’s what Patrick does best.

    One of his favorite quotes, “The Army has Army officers and soldiers, the Navy has naval officers and sailors, the Air Force has Air Force officers and airmen – but the Marines have only ''MARINES.'' - Gen. William Thornson, US Army, 1956
