Just a few artifacts from around our house. They belonged to a great great uncle of my husband’s.

On my side of the family we have a living veteran to remember to thank. My sister wore army boots in Bosnia and twice in Afganistan, amongst other places, before retiring.

Thank you.

    If I may ask that, as this poem is read today,
    we remember “the foe” is evil in any form…

    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
