The poppy field in Mantua is in bloom - Cache Valley Daily
Mantua on Monday.
Red poppy fields were inspiring back in WWI history. A Canadian physician, Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae wrote the poem “In Flanders Fields.” This poem describes a battlefield where red poppies grew and was the resting place of soldiers that died there. He wrote it in tribute to a fallen soldier and friend, Lieutenant Alexis Helmer, after presiding over the funeral. It became one of the more popular poems of the World War I era.
The poppies are colorful; going to the fields are great for someone looking for a summer adventure with children. There are plenty of trails that go through the flowers and lots of room to take pictures, though parking may be limited at times.

A bouquet for mama, and a history lesson - The Apopka Voice
She told me about the horrors of the first world war, what she called ”The great war.” And then she recited the poem, Flanders field, by John McRae which is as follows:FLANDERS FIELDSIn Flanders fields, the poppies blowbetween the crosses, row on row,that mark our place, and in the skyThe larks, still bravely singing, flyScarce heard amid the guns below.We are the dead. Short days agowe lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,Loved and were loved, and now we liein Flanders fields.Take up our quarrel with the foe:To you from failing hands we throwThe torch; be yours to hold it high.If ye break faith with us who diewe shall not sleep, though poppies growin Flanders Fields.That evening mama and I took those flowers out into our back yard and with some small ceremony we dug a little hole and buried them under the old walnut tree. I must admit, because of that long ago episode Memorial Day with its poppies has always been sort of special to me.

How militaries – new and old – used herbs plants and flowers on the battlefield - The Desert Sun
During the worst of it, battlefield hospitals stripped towns of every sheet and petticoat to create bandages. It was in the trenches at the battle of Flanders, Belgium, raged, that supplies ran short. Because calendulas are a cool season annual, England's top garden diva, Gertrude Jekyll, organized gardeners to grow loads of calendula flowers for the hospitals. She coordinated shipping by the bushel across the channel to British field hospitals.
It wasn't until after this war ended that another flower became known to veterans everywhere. Corn poppies, or Papaver rhoeas, are European wildflowers that love to grow with wheat, once called corn in Europe. Poppy seed prefers disturbed ground to germinate along with the newly-sown wheat.
The first year after the armistice, former agricultural fields of Flanders, France, exploded in blood-red flowers cloaking the entire battlefield pitted and pocked with craters. But what really stimulated the poppies was blood with its heavy dose of nitrogen that had saturated the muddy earth. That spring the poppies thrived while little else did, with no competition for nutrition or water. Such an epic bloom to this day is linked to the veterans' cause.
From these stories we learn that plants tell our story better than so many other man-made things. Before the 20th century, they were the best and often the only medicines known. They helped soldiers survive on the battlefield and field hospitals. They allowed small gardeners in England to save a life with their flowers and herbs. And poke, if you know how and when to cook it safely, like the good old boys of Dixie, it lends an edge against starvation.

WWI Memorial to light up in projection of poppy flowers to begin Armistice Day commemorations
World War I. Red poppy flowers became a symbol of peace following the war after a Canadian Army surgeon referenced them in a poem he wrote named "In Flanders Field." The bright flowers rose from dark battlegrounds of Europe during the war.DWP Live, a group who has designed Super Bowl halftime show performances, will set up the display named Peace and Remembrance. The lights will consist of nearly 55 million pixels. They will rotate every half hour from poppies to scenes of the war. The lights will be turned on from sunset every night until 1 a.m.CEO and president of the National World War I Museum and Memorial Matt Naylor called the illumination exhibit a "once in a lifetime" opportunity. "Us bathing the Memorial in poppies is a moving tribute to those who served and reminding us of their sacrifice," he said. Naylor's grandfather served in the British military during World War I. He's worked at the museum for the past six years. Aside from the Peace and Remembrance light exhibit, the museum has several other events planned to celebrate Armistice Day, or Veterans Day. From November 9 through 11, museum admission is free to veterans and active duty military members. Admission is half price to all others. Beginning at 9:30 a.m. November 11, the museum will host a ceremony commemorating the 100-year anniversary of the Armistice that ended World War I. The ceremony will include music, songs and readings from diaries of the period. At 10:55 that same morning, a Bells of P... Nov 15, 2018
Dawson County recognizes Veterans Day
Costley took a moment to explain the significance of the red poppy, the flower
that became the symbol of WWI remembrance due to the 1915 poem "In Flanders
Fields" by John McCrae.
"Long before the Great War the red poppy had become a
symbol of death, renewal in life. The seeds of the flower can remain dormant in
the earth for years, but will blossom spectacularly when the soil is churned,"
said Costley. "Beginning in late 1914 the fields of northern France in Flanders
became a scene of stupendous disturbances. Red poppies soon appeared."
In the poem, the red poppy flowers have grown in Flanders
Field, which was once covered in the blood of lives lost in World War I. Since
the poem's publication in 1918, the red poppy has become an international symbol
of the lives sacrificed and the hope that none had died in vain.
Costley also noted the honor of Dawson County being
nationally recognized as a regional site for Veterans Affairs in Georgia.
"Each year the Veterans Administration nationally
recognizes two locations in each state to be designated as regional sites for
the VA," Costley said. "The other one [besides Dawsonville], by the way, in the
state of Georgia is the city of Atlanta, so I am very honored, as we all are,
to have this designation bestowed upon us."
During the ceremony, the 2018 Veteran of the Year award
recipient was announced by Vietnam Veteran Wayne Watkins.
Sgt. Albert Andrew Day, an Alpharetta born Vietnam
veteran, serving in the third, infantry fourth battalion Delta company until
his honorable discharge in 1970, received the award for his military service
and his continued efforts within the Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 970.
Day currently serves on the board of directors and served
as the special operations officer in charge of the chapter's primary
fundraising event for two years.
"I don't feel like I deserve it, but I'll take it with
honor," Day said. "My tour in Vietnam might not have been as exciting as some
of you, but it was really an experience, and if I had to do it all over again,
I'd do it."... Jun 2, 2017
Cemetery ceremony honors fallen heroes
Ingo Rautenberg to read Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address and City Clerk Eileen Pulker to read the noted poem about World War I, "In Flanders Fields." “I love this day," Pulker said. "The whole day is special as we honor veterans.”Rev. Steven Bancroft, who is the manager of the cemetery, brings a wide range of expertise to his tasks. He is a retired captain of the U.S. Army Reserves and the former Dean of the Detroit Episcopal Cathedral. In his homily he chose to recognize the loyal service of veterans who served during peacetime or in important areas of service that did not include combat. He gave these men and women well-deserved recognition for their service. At the conclusion of his talk, he asked all veterans present to stand and be recognized.The Boy Scouts circulated among the veterans, giving each one an American flag lapel pin. The veterans appreciated the recognition.Bancroft and Margaret Matthes led the singing as the band played patriotic songs.One elderly woman described the experience of her late husband William J. Williams during World War II, noting that his name is on the monuments recognizing veterans. “He was on a Navy ship with the decks covered with barrels of explosives at Iwo Jima. Their task was to drop the cylinders to destroy the reefs so landing crafts could approach the island. They were bombed by kamikaze pilots but survived,” explained Shally Williams.Audience member Lucy Sabbagh said, “In this calm setting, we can think of men and women who have died to give us freedom.”Audrey Helou, wife of drummer B. Gabriel Helou, added, “This solemn occasion helps us remember the meaning of the day.”Members of the Ridley Family travelled from Chelsea to take part in the program. John Ridley, father of Tom, explained, ”Tom, 20, is playing an old, old sousaphone tuba, and my wife Jenn is playing sax in the band.”Mary Jane Major has lived in Franklin for 30 years, but the Memorial Day program brings back memories of the small town in northern Michigan where she grew up during World War II, “It makes me feel like crying,” she says. “When someone was killed, we all grieved. It was traumatic because we all knew one another.”Ann Lamott is especially knowledgable and interested in Franklin history. She and her husband Bill give cemetery tours. Last week she welcomed descendants of Josiah Barklay who died in the 1820s. They laid flowers on his grave and gave Ann copies of letters he sent to friends in the east encouraging them to come to Michigan.The Oakland County Sherrif’s Department Honor Guard...
