Poppies Comemorate Veterans’ Sacrifices

It’s that time of year again when the ladies from the Garcia Unit 110 American Legion Auxiliary approach you with the memorial poppies on Memorial Day Weekend. For over 70 years the American Legion Auxiliary has sponsored poppy day to remind Americans that millions have sacrificed their lives and health to keep America strong and free.
After World War I the poppy flourished in Europe and quickly became the symbol of the sacrifices made by servicemen and women. So when you are offered one of these poppies, make a donation, take one and wear it proudly in honor of veterans!
