The Poem, In Flanders Field depicts the causalities of war within and the honor due, by comrades in arms and the nation they served. This poem is highlighted below – courtesy of Arlington Cemetery. This past weekend, while running errands, the familiar poppy buttons and the copy of In Flanders Field were handed out by our veterans – there were many more participating than in years past – from the very old, who had served in WWI, to the newest Veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan – and to everyone of them, old, young, in between, for all the wars fought and forgotten by so many who have not served – take a moment to remember those who fought for freedom.
