|Dodges Who Fought For Their Country|
World War I
The Ultimate Sacrifice
"Not for fame or reward, not for place or for rank, not lured by ambition or goaded by necessity, but in simple obedience to duty as they understood it. They suffered all, sacrificed all, dared all, and died."
|In Flanders Fields |
In Flanders Fields the poppies blow between the crosses, row on row, that mark our place;
and in the sky the larks, still bravely singing, fly scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago we lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, loved, and were loved,
And now we lie in Flanders Fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe; To you from falling hands we throw the torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die we shall not sleep, though poppies grow in Flanders Fields.
