Veterans’ Day Poppies available Sam’s Club Brooksville, FL

Veterans from PLAV, Post #196, Spring Hill, FL will be offering traditional red poppies in front of Sam’s Club on SR 50 in Brooksville November 10, 2013. All donations will be accepted and the proceeds will be used to benefit veterans. This event is inspired by the famous poem “In Flanders Field” written by LTC John McCrae. The poem was written after WWI as a memorial to a friend and soldier who died at that location. “Its references to the red poppies that grew over the graves of fallen soldiers resulted in the remembrance poppy becoming one of the world’s most recognized memorial symbols for soldiers who have died in conflict.(copied from Wikipedia).”
