On Flanders Field…Photo essay on War

In Flanders Field the poppies blow, between the crosses row on row.        John McCrae upon the death of his friend Alexis Helmer in World War 1

Future Photographer Alfred Eisenstadt in Flanders, manning other equipment in 1917 . The rest of the pictures are so as to NEVER FORGET the price of  War that still goes on…only now they don’t release the Bloody pictures so we’ll forget the true cost. But this is it. Each of these souls represents a whole family a whole generation injured, for you cannot injure your brother without destroying yourself in the process…Memorial Day means never to forget that fact. Remember.  

This is what War means….Memorial Day means we won’t forget.
