Memorial Day.

With American soldiers still in harms way, I thought it would be fitting to provide some links to sites with more background on Memorial Day, celebrated for the first time following the Civil War some 142 years ago:

HERE is a history of Memorial Day site. 
HERE is a link to a non profit Arlington National Cemetery website.
HERE is a link to the poem In Flanders Field.
HERE is a link to history of poppy selling around Memorial Day.
