If you watched the Boston Bruins play over the weekend, you may have noticed the coaches wearing red flower pins on their lapels. Learn how poppies became a symbol of Veterans Day by reading In Flanders fields: the story of the poem by John McCrae. For an in-depth look at World War I, including a detailed timeline, see G.J.
