COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio State is reserving an empty seat in its football stadium to honor prisoners of war and military members considered missing in action.
The Columbus Dispatch (http://bit.ly/2cb1jLm ) reports that officials at the Columbus school recently unveiled the black chair. It’s in the first row of Section 3AA, marked with a POW-MIA logo.
It’s in the area where ROTC members sit during games. The location was chosen for its visibility.
Ohio State has more than 2,000 military and veteran students.
