Veterans are Hoping to get Appreciation in Return for their Flowers

Veterans and flowersVeterans that have served in wars or have become disabled as a result of their service are hoping that people will reach out to them this November to say, “thank you for your support.”

For nearly nine decades now veterans have collected poppies in their hospital beds, and distribute them during a month that is set aside to remember soldiers.

According to Jim Mitchell of the Sandy Post, by assembling the poppies veterans have something to do to pass the time spent in hospital beds.

“Disabled and needy veterans make the poppies. They are paid for their time. These are people that are typically in veterans hospitals on a long term basis,” says Mitchell.
