Also, Memorial Day is not just about the barbeques, it’s a day of remembrance. Every year around Memorial Day it is a familiar sight. Someone wearing a red poppy. But do you know why it is worn? The red poppy is a nationally recognized symbol of sacrifice that is worn by Americans and citizens of allied nations since World War I to honor those who served and died in all wars. Maggie spoke with James W. “Bill” Oxford, National Commander, The American Legion 2019-2020 to learn more about the symbol of sacrifice.
