    From Wikipedia:

    In 1855, British historian Lord Macaulay, writing about the site of the Battle of Landen (in modern Belgium, not far from Ypres) in 1693, wrote “The next summer the soil, fertilised by twenty thousand corpses, broke forth into millions of poppies. The traveller who, on the road from Saint Tron to Tirlemont, saw that vast sheet of rich scarlet spreading from Landen to Neerwinden, could hardly help fancying that the figurative prediction of the Hebrew prophet was literally accomplished, that the earth was disclosing her blood, and refusing to cover the slain.”

    “The poppies they do grow where they were never sown, and to my mind they do declare it best” – Fairport Convention, “Red & Gold”

    Tomorrow – On the Eleventh Hour of the Eleventh Day of the Eleventh Month, please observe a moment of silence for those brave men an women who gave their lives in the defense of freedom. Tradition says the the Armistice to end the Great War ( World War I ) was signed at that time in 1918. Let us also honor all of those veterans, male and female, living and deceased, that have proudly worn the uniforms of the United States armed forces. Thank You All For Your Service !

    Yes, the powers that be have not forgotten, so they still try to find even MORE wars for the world to fight!

    I have a spent howitzer shell that was fired during WW 1. Every time I look at it, I am reminded that once, someone, possibly a frightened kid, loaded this and shot it. My late father’s insignia remind me that many Americans fought and died in Korea, another war not often discussed. To all veterans, alive and dead, I humbly thank you.

    In Flanders Field

    In Flanders fields the poppies blow
    Between the crosses, row on row,
    That mark our place; and in the sky
    The larks, still bravely singing, fly
    Scarce heard amid the guns below.

    We are the Dead. Short days ago
    We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
    Loved and were loved, and now we lie,
    In Flanders fields.

    Take up our quarrel with the foe:
    To you from failing hands we throw
    The torch; be yours to hold it high.
    If ye break faith with us who die
    We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
    In Flanders fields.

    John McCrae

    Now that the last US vet of that war has left us, this is an especially good time to express our thanks to all the Doughboys who returned, married, and started families, only to face the Depression. An excellent reminder of why Nov 11 is Veterans’ Day.

    McCrae, a surgeon on the Western Front, wrote this in 1915 when the terrible slaughter was already taking place, and in the third stanza he tells us he wants it to continue. When the job was done, the war was won, this poem reminded us all, that freedom is not free.

    @Fred Hetzel

    My father served with Patton in N. Africa, then he served in Korea, and when he was posted in Vietnam to further train the newbies from the states in jungle warfare, he cried. He could not stand seeing another young man die, and so retired. This man loved and instilled a love; for his country, to his children. I can not witness a parade where any of our veterans are passing, without standing, my hand over my heart, and tears falling. God Bless our service people all over the world. Whether fighting battles, or rescuing people from natural disasters, we are there. And we care…God Bless America!

    As an old vet, thank you. And to my brothers and sisters thank you and stay safe.
