•MEMORIAL POPPIES SYMBOL OF A NATION'S DEVOTION Emblem of the dead and dying on the fields of Flanders in 1918, the American Legion Memorial Poppy has been glorified by the American people as their "Flower of Remembrance." Down through the years, the Legion Memorial Poppy has given to all patriotic citizens — rich and poor alike — their chance to honor the dead by helping the living. The annual sale of Memorial Foppies senes two great purposes. It fosters the beautiful custom of wearing these little flowers, once each year, in mute salute to the memory of America's honored dead; it provides the funds that are required to serve the daily personal ne«ds of the nation's disabled and needy veterans, and their dependents. There are millions of unfortunate ^eterans — as tvell as widows and orphans and dependent parents —who are unable to qualify for go\ernment aid. Why? Mainly because the government itself — < In time of war — has never been able to maintain accurate records on the physical .welfare of each individual in uniform. Through no fault of their own, these veterans — many of them the victims of the lingering effects of exposure, shock and malnutrition — are unable to qualify for help from their government because their service records fail to confirm the origin of their ailments. Your support of the annual sale of Memorial Poppies makes it possible for the American Legion to maintain its great, nation-wide program of free rehabilitation service to the millions of needy veterans. Every dune or dollar which you may gne in exchange for a Memorial Poppy eoes into a special sacred fund — one that will be spent for the relief and rehabilitation of America's disabled veterans, and their needy loved ones.
