LOOK: LSU unveils seat in Tiger Stadium to honor soldiers who are POW/MIA

Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge has over 100,000 seats. It’s almost impossible to tell most of them apart from far away.

Now, one will certainly stand out.

LSU has unveiled a new seat in Tiger Stadium to honor prisoners of war and those soldiers who are missing in action.

The seat is cordoned off by a chain, a wall and fencing. It’s painted black and gold with the symbol for the National League of POW/MIA families on it as well

The print on that plaque is a little small. It reads in full:

“This unoccupied seat is in honor of those who are still prisoners of war (POW) or missing in action (MIA) and symbolizes their will always be a place in this stadium awaiting their return.”

College football has so many unique and wonderful traditions. Chalk this one up as a wonderful way to honor those who have served, but have yet to return.
