Double-Check Your Beneficiaries, The Story Of The VFW "Buddy" Poppy...

Quick Memorial Day episode for you...

First up, a quick reminder to check and make sure you've got correct and up-to-date beneficiaries designated for all of your retirement accounts. It's the right thing to do on, say, Memorial Day, when the markets are closed.

And the story of the VFW "Buddy" Poppy. Here's the 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.
