Message Endorsing the Annual ’Buddy Poppy’ Sale.
April 17, 1929

[Released April 17, 1929. Dated April 8, 1929]

My dear Commander:

The annual "Buddy Poppy" campaign, under the auspices of the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States, is a fitting symbol of the sacrifice of those who died in the service of our Country, and should remind us of the obligations and sacrifice demanded of all good citizens in times of peace.

The fact that the manufacture of these poppies gives employment to disabled ex-service men, in the hospitals and elsewhere, adds to the worthiness of the cause. I am glad to give my hearty endorsement to this worthy enterprise.
Yours faithfully,
HERBERT HOOVER

[Eugene P. Carver, Jr., Esq., Commander-in-Chief, Veterans of Foreign Wars of the U.S., Boston, Mass.]
