Evoking Canadian physician Maj. John McCrae's famous poem from World War I, "In Flanders Fields," British Army Pvt. John Hayes' display of poppies is inspired by his service in Operation Iraqi Freedom, his diagnosis of PTSD and his experience with the U.K.'s Combat Stress program. Hayes said he's found an escape in art, and it has played a major role in his life and rehabilitation. McCrae wrote "In Flanders Fields" following the Second Battle of Ypres in May 1915 and references the red poppies that grew over the graves of fallen soldiers and later became a symbol of service members who died in combat.
