As part of the ceremony, the President of the United States lays a wreath on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers to remember and give thanks.

Remembrance Day Poem – In Flanders Fields
By John McCrae
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.

It’s not really enough to know that a relative served in the first Gulf War or World War II. You should learn the historical details of those conflicts and your dad or granddad’s role in it. And your Remembrance Day video will perfect and meaningful.
Remembrance Day Song
Sing veteran patriotic song will be heartwarming. Does anyone know the “Soldiers Cry” by Roland Majeau? We will be celebrating Remembrance Day in a couple of weeks and I would like to use that song as part of my class presentation.
