HOW TO OBSERVE MEMORIAL DAY
"...gather around their sacred remains and garland the passionless mounds above them with choicest flowers of springtime let us in this solemn presence renew our pledges to aid and assist those whom they have left among us as sacred charges upon the Nation's gratitude the soldier's and sailor's widow and orphan..."
~General John Logan, General Order No.11, 5 May 1868
"...We cherish, too, the poppy red That grows on fields where valor led; It seems to signal to the skies That blood of heroes never dies, But lends a luster to the red Of the flower that blooms above the dead In Flanders Fields...."
~Moina Michael American professor and humanitarian
