Poppy Memorial

Mary Catherine saw this as one of the things to see while in DC for the Memorial Day weekend.

I expected a field of planted poppies (which, in hindsight, was a silly idea) but we got a long truck with glass walls that were filled with those fabric poppies they hand out at parades, memorials, etc.  One poppy per person killed in action since WWI.  Very meaningful exhibit especially considering the time we saw it.
