ranger1 BS: No poppies for me (342* d) RE: BS: No poppies for me 02 Nov 16

As an American, I'm generally in the minority because I DO wear a poppy on Veteran's Day, as it's called on this side of the Atlantic. I wear it to honor family members who served, and also to educate those who don't know what it symbolizes. And there are many of them over here. I had to explain to my younger co-workers last year that Veteran's Day is also Armistice Day and that it always falls on the 11th. Then I had to explain what Armistice Day was and why the date and time are significant. I'm not that old, I'm 47, and I had a hard time dealing with the fact that something I think should have been common knowledge wasn't.
