When I was young, the American Legion Women's Auxiliary selected me to be their Poppy Girl. I was tasked with honorary Memorial Day duties and selling poppies to community members. I was 10.
This Poppy Wall is amazing. I do not know this man, I found him by selecting a virtual Poppy and elected to share. (Click on the image to be taken to the dedication wall's website).
On this Memorial Day weekend it is important to remember and give thanks for all of those who lost their lives to ensure our freedom.
