Poppy Flower Remembrance Christmas Ornament, Gold Plated

The red poppy is an internationally recognized symbol of remembrance to commemorate those soldiers who have died in war serving their country. In 1915, Canadian physician and Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae wrote In Flanders Fields, which referred to the brilliant red poppies that bloomed in the aftermath of World War I. This inspired Ms. Moina Michael to publish We Shall Keep The Faith, in which she vows to always wear a red poppy as a symbol of remembrance. 

This design combines traditional and contemporary poppy flowers set against war time explosions of the night's dark blue skies.

Was surprised they came. Ordered the gold but was out of them. Silver is beautiful also. I had gotten a gold one while visiting Pearl Harbor. Ordered these for gifts.
Thank you.

To the Backroom Guys and Gals

I had the flag flown over the Arizona on 2 September (the official VJ day) in memory of all the men and women who worked tirelessly to analyze, break and exploit the cypher machines of both Japan and Germany. Granted, they were not being shot at, but work on these machines was frustratingly difficult and at that time thankless-any breakthrough could not be revealed. Even when the machines were solved it was no easy task to find the proper settings and actually decode the enciphered data.

Family Treasure

My Great Uncle was Band master PO 1st Class Frederick Kinney. The entire experience was emotionally moving bringing up sadness and gratitude. My mother told us stories about the day, and how the whole family in eastern Kentucky huddled around the radio for news. It was afirm memory for her, since her uncle was killed on her birthday. When my wife found we could purchase a flag and have it flown over the memorial, we jumped at the opportunity. We are building a shadow box for the flag, the certificate, photo of Kinney, and miniatures of the medals PO 1st Class Kinney was awarded. If I could rate this with ten stars,bi would

Excellent Product. Excellent service. I donated this flag to The Star Transportation Dept in Terrell Texas. They are located across the street from where I work. They recently installed a new flag pole and I just felt compelled to give them a gift.
