Norbert Reif and Floyd Williams assemble artificial poppies for separate veterans organizations. The men are residents of the West Virginia Veterans Home in Barboursville.
The red poppy has been the symbol of remembrance of veterans for more than 90 years. The West Virginia American Legion Auxiliary distributes handmade artificial poppies on Veterans Day and Memorial Day as a fundraiser.
