    U.S. and Poland continue heritage of rapidly moving troops, ammunition for combat readiness

    The red poppy is an internationally-recognized symbol of sacrifice worn since World War I to honor those who served and died. In Poland, the red poppy is a national flower due to its symbolism in one of the best-known Polish military songs of World War II, “The Red Poppies On Monte Cassino.” It was composed during the Battle of Monte Cassino the night before the Polish Army won. Over 1,079 Polish Soldiers died (according to the song, in a field of red poppies) and are buried in a nearby cemetery. (Photo by Laurie Pearson, Marine Corps Logistics Base Barstow)
