A couple of miles up the road from where I work and live, there’s quite a striking sight in front of the Wegmans supermarket.
The Flags of Honor and Gratitude surely make for an impressive collection. The premised for the past several weeks: Folks can sponsor a flag in the array in the name of a loved one who served.
The rows upon rows of flags on the day I took these photos were almost full.
Right there, standing on a usually nondescript commercial strip of a county road, I repeatedly got goosebumps as I maneuvered through the flags and thought about what each one meant, to those who wrote the tags and those whose names were put on them.
In the half-hour or so that I paid my respect along with my photo-taking, a handful of other people parked, perused, and did their own private thing.

Happy Veterans Day to all who served and are serving. Thank you for all you have done, for our country and the world.
Who would you select a flag of honor and gratitude for, and what would you say on the tag? What displays for Veterans Day have you seen in your neighborhood that have moved you? Which is your favorite photo, and why?
