YOU, my dear Soldiers, made my Country Great...............






In Flanders Field
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




With immense respect and grateful

heart to all who bravely did their part

and gallantly fought across the sea

to keep my world safe for me

You battled Evil - Inconceivable hate

YOU - my dear Soldiers,

Made my country great

  


Thank you dear Veterans

From the bottom of my heart

  12. I memorized that poem as a small child--my grandfather fought with his majesty's infantry (in a Canadian regiment) in WWI. My American grandfather also fought and was in France on Armistice Day. Thanks to all who served, and those who continue to do so.
