September 11 - 13th:  ANNUAL FORGET-ME-NOT DAYS of the Disabled American Veterans Chapter No. 1. On those days, Forget-Me-Nots (small blue flowers of remembrance) will be handed out by volunteers at businesses in Sioux Falls.  Funds raised by the project will be applied directly to the assistance of local Disabled Veterans and their families during the coming year, according to Ken Laughlin, Adjutant of DAV Chapter No. 1.  It's easy to show you remember and appreciate the sacrifice of the men and women who became disabled in the service of their country by wearing a Forget-Me-Not on September 11th thru September 13th.  The first time DAV members ever offered little blue Forget-Me-Nots to the public was February 24, 1926. The first DAV Forget-Me-Not drive was held to raise funds to support DAV services and assistance desperately need by veterans disabled in World War I.  The idea grew out of an image carried home from the First World War in the memories of soldiers who had seen spring flowers growing among the graves of comrades and allies killed in the fighting. A man could respond to such a scene, with its promise of new life following the sacrifices of so many. The poem “In Flanders Field,” by Canadian Colonel John McCrae, immortalized the image, capturing the hearts of people yearning for peace.  You can help the DAV assist local Disabled Veterans by purchasing a little blue Forget-Me-Not on September 11th thru September 13th. American's Disabled Veterans didn't forget their duty. Please don't forget them!
