In Memoriam - Fort Logan National Cemetery, Denver

PPPS (Denver)—For Greg Rund, USMC and all of the others who died in the service of our country. Thank you for your sacrifice so that others might live free.

Following is a poem titled Flanders Fields and pictures from today's ceremony at Fort Logan National Cemeetary, Denver, Colorado.

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 failing 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.

– Col John McCrae
