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.
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.
The university says the idea came from the POW/MIA support group in Massachusetts.
