Current GOAL

Please drop this item in rural OR Premium Member Only caches.  Do not place it in an urban cache or abandon it at a caching event.  Transport the bug in the original plastic bag for as long as the bag lasts; the bag keeps the trackable clean and prevents tangling with other items.  Otherwise, take the travel bug anywhere you wish.  No permission is needed to leave the U.S.

Photos in the travel bug logs are appreciated.  I will be re-post them here, where they can be seen by other cachers.

About This Item

poppy-5

This travel bug is one of a series of six made to commemorate soldiers who died serving their respective countries.  Although the bugs originated in the United States, they were sent to cachers (Tipsy_1) in Belgium who agreed to start the bugs on their journey in a nation where so many military dead are interred.  

The travel bugs are laminated photographs of poppies on one side and blue cornflowers on the other.  In the U.S. and Canada poppies are a symbol of war dead whereas nations in Europe respectively use either poppies or cornflowers for the same purpose.  We hope future cachers will honor a fallen soldier with a visit, be it at a military cemetery in the land where they died, or in their homeland, at a family plot at a church or civil cemetery.  Photos if possible.
