Memorial Day

We honor the military personnel who have died while serving in our United States Armed Forces.  

The red paper poppy is worn to memorialize the same.  Poppies were the first flowers grown in the soil over military graves in Flanders, the Dutch speaking area of Belgium. In 1920, the American Legion took the bright red poppy as its official symbol of remembrance.
