Red Poppy

To all those serving now or in the past, in the Commonwealth. In the States, Veteran's Day is Wednesday. Whatever your feelings about the wars in Iraq & Afghanistan, today & Wednesday are days to remember. For non-US readers, our Memorial Day in May is often marked with red poppies--where I am, anyway. It seems to have increased in popularity in November, as well.

Here is a lovely birthday & Remembrance Sunday post by From the Desk of Bee Drunken for her brother in Afghanistan.
