Remembrance Day evolved out of Armistice Day, which marked the end of hostilities in WWI in 1918. After WWII, the day was renamed “Remembrance Day,” although Armistice Day is still celebrated on the same day. The United States rebranded its November 11th celebration after the Korean War to honor all U.S. veterans, living and dead. The connection with the poppy and the fallen soldier was solidified with one of the era’s most famous poems, “In Flanders Field,” was written by Canadian physician Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae. McCrae was reportedly inspired to write the poem after presiding over the funeral of his friend and fellow soldier 22-year-old Lieutenant Alexis Helmer, who died in the Second Battle of Ypres. The poem gives voice to those soldiers buried in the battlefield, pleading with survivors to take up the torch of their fight, and to remember them even though red poppies now cover the battlefield.Today the red poppy remains a popular outward sign of remembrance and honor to those you made immeasurable sacrifice. We honor the men and women who have served and continue to serve our nation, and those who bravely fought and gave their lives so we may continue to live and prosper.
