Remembering Our Fallen Troops...

in which all wars that Americans have fought and died.~~~~~ In Flanders Fields was written by LTC. John McCrae - who himself became a Fallen Troop after serving four years in WWI. In Flanders field 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.~~~~~We Honor Our Fallen Troops - and Remember.
