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. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/In_Flanders_Fields

That's a great poem. But is this about Veterans Day or symbolic for something else?

IT IS VETERANS DAY . I Think we can remember the ones that gave their all so we can debate why they served in the wars our country has been in . I served because I thought it was the right thing to do and my fathers and uncles all served in WW-II all but the two working on Oak-ridge. I know some that ran off to Canada and became politicians later after the Vietnam war and Jimmy Carter pardoned them all . Well but that seemed a cowards way out to me.

I understand its Veterans Day. I didn't know if it was for Veterans Day (like the poem intended) or it was symbolic for the topic of discussion (i.e. 'Impending Death of America' at the hands of the Democrats) It kinda came out of no where and is deserving of its own thread.

That's why I asked. Thanks for your service - and your families dedication to serving.

WELL I gave it a thread on the General forum SO the sacrifices of the past generations will be seen by the new ones.
