Flanders Poppies

During this busy weekend, did you see VFW (Veterans of Foreign Wars) members at intersections giving away red “Buddy Poppies” for donations? Did you get one? Did you wear it?

The VFW veterans are not an unaccustomed sight during the Memorial Day weekend, but do you know what the poppies mean? Do you know the story for the poppy being a symbol of remembrance for our war dead?
