The red poppy was immortalized in the famous poem, “In Flanders Fields,” written by a Canadian officer, Col. John McCrae, a physician, who was inspired by the flower. McCrae was intrigued with the poppy, which can lay dormant in the soil for years, and its ability to reappear in great numbers.
He immediately associated it and his deep respect for his veteran patients and deceased comrades and he wrote the poem for them. Eventually, the red poppy was used as a symbol of remembrance by the British, Canadian and American troops, and as a fundraiser to help their disabled veterans…
The poppy has become known and recognized symbol of sacrifice and is worn and used by auxiliary members to honor the men and women who served and died for their country in all wars.
You will see members selling the famous red poppies in your community; please be generous and purchase many. You will be helping our resilient veterans in their attempt to live the peaceful life they so much deserve.
To our fallen, a life that was given in service of their country should never be forgotten.
Purchase a red poppy today, remember our living veterans, remember our fallen veterans, from every war every day.
