For the Fallen plaque

To honor the Veterans, read some poems: an assortment of classic and contemporary Veterans Day poems from the Poetry Foundation collection; “The Soldier” by Rupert Brooke; “For the Fallen” by Laurence Binyon (the 4th stanza, which appears on the plaque, is read at remembrance services in Britain every year); and a few more from the Charter for Compassion.
