Poppies Remember Veterans Day

Roundup: Remembrance Poppies

In honor of Veterans Day, which is commemorated today, many people wear poppies on their lapels. Ever wonder how this tradition originated? The poppies are an image from Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae's poem, "In Flanders Fields," which was written during World War I. The poppies in the poem reference those that grew in the battlefields and cemeteries in Flanders. Make sure to read the poem if you haven't had the chance to before.

While you're at it, be sure to thank a veteran today for his or her service to the country, or better yet, contact your local veterans' fund to donate your time or money contribution. If you want to add a poppy to a more permanent place in your home, check out the roundup below.
