VFW Post 9415 To Host Veterans Day Ceremony & Poppy Distribution

Tri-Community NewsPlus

Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 9415 in Phelan welcomes the Tri-Community to attend their Veterans Day Ceremony on Friday, November 11, 2022 beginning at 11am followed by a Flag Retirement Ceremony by Wrightwood Boy Scout Troop 351.

If anyone has a flag that is ready for retirement it can be dropped off anytime at the Post’s flag depository- (an old mail box) located at the front of the Post next to Sgt. Striker. The Boy Scouts hold a Flag Retirement Ceremony on Memorial Day and Veterans Day each year. If you haven’t had a chance to witness the ceremony, it is well worth taking the time to be a part of this solemn ceremony. The VFW will be in front of Stater Bros on November 11, 12, 13th with the Poppy Distribution. Have you wondered why the VFW Auxiliary does this? The poppy is a symbol of the sacrifices our military have made.

“In Flanders Fields” is a war poem in the form of a rondeau, written during the First World War by Canadian physician Lt. Col. John McCrae. He was inspired to write it on May 3, 1915, after presiding over the funeral of friend and fellow soldier Alexis Helmer, who died during the Second Battle of Ypres in Belgium. The poppy became a symbol of the sacrifice of lives in war and represented the hope that none had died in vain.
