“You can hear how many men and women gave their lives but when you see the Wall with all their names it really becomes real and makes an impact on you. I love the way everyone has reverence while at the Wall which shows the love that all these patriotic men and women had. Being able to touch our loved ones’ name help bring closure and help us to be able to move on.” -Nancy H., California

It all started in war-devastated France in World War I. The red poppy growing in Flanders Fields memorialized the deaths of American and Allied soldiers. Madame Anna E Guérin, founder of the American and French Children’s League, spoke at servicemen’s organizations and always requested the same thing: Please, whenever possible, wear a silk red poppy flower to honor the fallen.
Coming home doesn't mean the battle is over. With over 10 times the amount of veterans lost to suicide than to combat operations in the same time period, there has never been a more important time to TAKE A STAND and DO something to support our veterans!! If you or someone you know is suffering from PTSD, we have people that have shared a similar experience and are ready to help.
