Observing Veteran’s Day in Small Town America

Today, I’m posting a single photo taken in Kingman, Kansas on Friday. The few blocks of Main Street were all decorated in a way that captured the spirit of America in a way that made me pause for a walk about town snapping photos and simply thinking about the role small towns have in the country. It was a perfect followup to my SmallTown2012 experience.

One note that should give pause for all of us — 16 percent of the U.S. population lives in rural America, but 40 percent of our military comes from rural America. Knowing that, you can bet a lot more small towns took time today to honor the veterans among us.

    Wow, that is an incredible statistic. There are a lot of small communities and schools that go all out for Veteran’s Day. Glad you got to experience it small town style, JP!

      I celebrated over the weekend…. really was a great way to do it, being in a small town.
