An empty seat. A powerful symbol.

An empty seat waiting to be filled. That’s the hope of Edward Hines Jr. VA Hospital’s Remembrance Table, also known as America’s White Table.

Edward Hines Jr. VA Hospital’s Remembrance Table symbolizes the more than 80,000 American Veterans listed as missing or captured, and those waiting for their return. It sits in the facility’s cafeteria, in hopes that it will one day be filled by a returning Veteran. (Photo by Louis Washkowiak, Hines VA Hospital Media Services)
