I do remember buying a remembrance poppy from a veteran here in the US a few years ago, but wearing them isn't nearly as common as it is in Commonwealth countries.
But what I miss most about the Remembrance Day ceremonies that I attended in my childhood is the singing of the hymn O Valiant Hearts. Sadly, it's not heard often here in the US.

With Remembrance Sunday coming up, I just started thinking whether Americans wear poppies or not. For those who don't know, it's basically a symbol worn primarily in the UK in November to remember those who lost their lives in WW1 and WW2, and soldiers in current wars who have lost their lives as well. I saw British news reporters wear them at the Presidential Election, and I'm sure some of you guys have seen British PMs wear one as well.michaelP4
It's like you aren't even writing in english.
