After World War I, the poppy flourished in Europe. Scientists attributed the growth to soils
in France and Belgium becoming enriched with lime from the rubble left by the war. From the
dirt and mud grew a beautiful red poppy. The red poppy came to symbolize the blood shed
during battle following the publication of the wartime poem “In Flanders Fields.” The poem
was written by Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae, M.D. while serving on the front lines.
On September 27, 1920, the poppy became the official flower of The American Legion family
to memorialize the soldiers who fought and died during the war. In 1924, the distribution of
poppies became a national program of The American Legion.
Please join us in distributing Poppies on May 9th, 10th and 11th.
All donations received will be used by The American Legion Family for their programs that support veterans, the military community and their families.
There is a sign-up sheet outside our Adjutant’s Office.
