Forget me? Not.

Posted by Ralph Ranalli August 20, 2007 12:16 PM



With the flood of wounded soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan these days, the annual sale of forget-me-nots by the Disabled American Veterans organization has quickly gone from a quaint annual custom to an activity that is both urgently needed and painfully relevant.

The fund raiser, which begins today, is conducted around the country by local chapters of the Kentucky-based organization. The flowers will be sold at a variety of sites around the city through Sept. 3.

Anyone seeking for more information about the DAV's mission is urged to visit the group online.
