On Sunday, Rolling Thunder Indiana, the stadium and the Colts dedicated the chair.

“You think at 1,700 people from Indiana since WWII have never come home. That’s somebody’s brother, father, sister – whatever it may be. And I know if it was my dad, I would want to know what happened to him,” Dick Harrington of Rolling Thunder said.

Throughout the US, 82,000 military service members are still unaccounted for.
