Veterans Day 2020 – #1LinerWeds

For my one-liner Wednesday this week, I offer this very simple message to all the men and women who have ever served this country:

“Thank you for your service!”

This post is part of Linda G. Hill’s fun weekly series One-Liner Wednesday. If you have a one-liner, If you would like to join in on the fun, you can follow this link to participate and to see the one-liners from the other participants.


  1. Hi Dan – thanks for this … reminding us of all who served and still serve, as well as all others who help us in our lives. The Park at Windsor Locks is very special to have nearby … take care – Hilary

    • This was my pleasure, Hilary. The park is a constant reminder. There’s an old school (now apartments for the/us elderly) that was built in 1954, the same year I was born. It reminds me of the return to normal life and the prosperity that followed the war. The men and women who returned from war, built this park and school so their children could enjoy the peace they fought to establish.

  2. The Field of Flags is quite sobering…..and beautiful. Very nice tribute to all those who served and to those who serve today. Your photos demonstrate the meaning of today beautifully.

    I offer my simple thanks and gratitude to all our Veterans, past and present. We will NEVER forget your service or sacrifice.

  3. Allow me to add my deepest thanks to the men and women in the military who serve our country. Their dedication to constant training and preparation for whatever is to come is completely selfless and truly respected.

    Love the photo of the bald eagle, Dan. Have a wonderful Wednesday!

    • Thanks for joining me, Mary. We live near an Air National Guard base and an Army Reserve base. We see (hear and sometimes feel) evidence of that training, every day (sometimes the C-130s rattle the walls).

  4. This year, moreso than any other, I pray that the people of the world will reflect on why this day is important: The men and women who sacrificed everything for us so that we could live in peace and enjoy freedom. If anyone reading this is adverse to wearing a mask during a pandemic that has so horrifically devastated the elderly among us — the same elderly who have lived through wars, who have seen more death and destruction than most of us can even imagine, and who sacrificed voluntarily everything they had to secure our rights and freedoms… please think of them before you decide that wearing a mask for 30 minutes in a store is too much of a hardship for you. God bless our veterans, both alive and dead. ♥

  5. Well that we should remember. A field of flags flying. A beautiful yet terrible sight. Most veterans are reluctant to talk about the details of conflict. On Memorial day we fly the flag at half staff until noon to remember the terrible cost in lives. We raise it to remember the blessing of freedom and victory. On Patriots day Sept 11 the flag is flown at half mast all day. It is raised to full mast the following day. On Veterans day the flag is at full staff all day. Thank you to all veterans for their service.

  6. That field of Flags is mesmerizing! Having had a street full of neighbors in the forest, who were veterans, this is a special day to remember! Thank you for your tribute to them:)
