Why do we use poppies for veterans?

The reason poppies are used to remember those who have given their lives in battle is because they are the flowers which grew on the battlefields after World War One ended. This is described in the famous World War One poem In Flanders Fields. It is also used to help those who have lost loved ones because of wars.
