The University of Toledo has come up with a special way to honor military members who were prisoners of war and those who were declared missing in action.The Glass Bowl is now home to an unoccupied stadium seat in honor of POWs and MIAs.
A ceremony marked the dedication of the seat Saturday at the Glass Bowl before Toledo's 45-44 victory over Navy in double overtime. Toledo Athletic Director Mike O'Brien says the empty seat will be a permanent reminder of the sacrifices made by those who were prisoners of war and those killed in action. Toledo is the first university to make this type of dedication.
