We Take Pride in Our Tie to the Poppy

May 20, 2019

Red poppies aren’t just pretty flowers.

They’re so much more to The American Legion Family, and those we serve.

Poppies symbolize the sacrifice of U.S. Service Members killed while protecting our nation. We wear the flower to honor those fallen heroes -- and in support of our military, veterans, and their families.

ALA members distribute red crepe paper poppies in exchange for donations. All money collected directly supports service members, veterans, and their families through the ALA’s outreach programs.

Poppies are pretty -- but the flower’s impact is significant!
