    A salute to veterans, and thank you for your service.

    Especially to my dad, 1st LT. United States Air Force Strategic Air Command, 1954 - 1956. Rest In Peace.

    11:00 hours on 11 november 1918 marked the end of fighting in world war I, the war to end all wars. Armistice day is now more commonly known as veterans day.

    I wasn't honored to serve. In '73 my number which was 12 at the time came up but the draft was discontinued before I had to report. My father, his two brothers and three of my uncles all served in WWII. They saw active duty on the front lines on land and sea. They're all gone now but were definitely members of the "Greatest Generation." They did their part to save to world.

    Note: The following poem was written during WWI. The significance of the poppy is not well known; it is in fact the first thing that grows in certain areas of Europe after the ground has been disturbed. In this instance, the disturbance was the the digging of the graves for the fallen soldiers. God Bless those who served this country and those who served our allies.

    In Flanders Fields

    by John McCrae, May 1915

    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 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.

    Inspiration for “In Flanders Fields”
    Lieutenant Alexis Helmer, 1st Brigade Canadian Field Artillery. (1) Lieutenant Alexis Helmer, 1st Brigade Canadian Field Artillery (source: A Crown of Life)

    During the early days of the Second Battle of Ypres a young Canadian artillery officer, Lieutenant Alexis Helmer, was killed on 2nd May, 1915 in the gun positions near Ypres. An exploding German artillery shell landed near him. He was serving in the same Canadian artillery unit as a friend of his, the Canadian military doctor and artillery commander Major John McCrae.

    As the brigade doctor, John McCrae was asked to conduct the burial service for Alexis because the chaplain had been called away somewhere else on duty that evening. It is believed that later that evening, after the burial, John began the draft for his now famous poem “In Flanders Fields”.
