“America's veterans have served their country with the belief that democracy and freedom are ideals to be upheld around the world. “ — John Doolittle
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 the 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. In Flanders Fields by John McCrae
